Hand Painted in Watercolours on stretched Canson Aquarelle Paper.

Hydrangeas, or like we say in South Africa: Krismisrose! Hand painted in watercolours. In the early ninetees, I was asked to paint inside an art shop in central Cape Town. I took live hydrangeas to the store and produced this piece in 3 hours, chatting with customers as I worked. When there are many onlookers, the pressure is ON – no booboos allowed. As a teacher I tend to thrive under those circumstances!

    Wow, Marie! And to think you did this all the while talking with customers! Outstanding!

  • Thank you, Pat…I remember that we sold many Eve nr 16 long-handled brushes that morning because it looked as if the brush was doing it on its own!
