Garden Sketches 3 - Petunias



It has been raining the whole day; therefore, I cut a Petunia and painted it in my Studio. It is nearly impossible to capture the colours and the transparency of the flower meanwhile you are working under artificial light...

Es regnete heute den ganzen Tag; deshalb schnitt ich eine Petunie ab und malte sie in meinem Arbeitszimmer. Es ist aber nahezu unmöglich, die Farbe und Transparenz dieser Pflanze darzustellen, wenn man sie unter künstlichem Licht malen muß...

My first visit to your blog, and I'm very impressed! You're very versatile; detailed botanical drawings, loose watercolours, graphite. Is there anything you can't do?!
