This floral study was painted from a photograph taken in my friend Marge Brand't studio some time ago. It is approximately 22" x 14" and is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper. I particularly like the way the drapery and the background worked out - you know you never know when you start a large wash if you will be able to control all the little subtle variations in shadow and light without too many blooms, etc. The flowers were from my friend Patty's garden. She always has beautiful flowers.
