Watercolour on full sheet of cp watercolour paper. A painting of rhododendrons from the botanic gardens in Christchurch, New Zealand. At present, this is my very favourite floral painting.

    So beautiful! You are a master of painting light.

  • Thanks! Capturing light in my painting is one of my primary goals. Watercolours are ideal for that.
