Watercolour on watercolour paper
5 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches
Barbara Muir ©This little watercolour is from the file of former
work. For a few years I considered myself to
be a flower painter. I still love painting flowers,
but it hasn't been my main focus in the recent
past. Landscape, portraits and still life have
been more my thing.
But this painting is from a time when I was
studying famous flower painters, who were
like scientists in paint. I love the detail, and
would rarely paint like this today. Now I'm
trying to get looser.
But I'll admit it, uncovering this today, when
I can't show you something new, was like
getting a gift from the universe. Another
one, because this whole, hot, beautiful day
was a gift from the universe.
Have a loving your work day.
