Botanical in Glass


This is a lovely azalea that has such unique color patterns. One bloom can be almost solid peachy color while the bloom next to it may be almost white with a few splotches of color. This is painted on Twinrocker HP paper 6x8. I might need to darken the center of the back bloom just a bit more.

Thanks Candy, Barbara & Micah. I really appreciate you guys dropping by and commenting. Azalea season is over here but at least I have the pictures to work from.
