Begonia Watercolor by Pat Yager

Currently unavailable for purchase

I can’t resist these begonias, especially with their long, pointed leaves. I repainted this one a little and added the later edition to RB in April, 2012.

12"x 12" on Arches 140 cold press paper

Here is the link to my new calendar:


begonia, leaf, color, watercolor, green pink

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    Beautiful Pat!!!! The Begonia depth of color is wonderful and I especially like the variety of color on the leaf. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  • I’m so pleased you like it, Diane! I wanted to pep up the leaf just a bit, so added a few colors.

  • Hi, Leslie! Thought I’d try something a little different on the leaf to jazz it up a bit!
