Succulent ll – watercolour on 1/4 sheet Arches watercolour paper 300 gsm.
I painted this for entry into the Paint the Gardens art show in Williamstown Botanic Gardens. Last year I entered a painting of a succulent, and sold it. This year I entered this one. I’m happy to say it sold also.

Originally I was going to crop it much closer, having a frame already , which would have cropped out a lot of the background. My husband thought it would be a shame to crop lout the lovely effects from the salt. Glad I listened .
