This may be familiar to some of you, and I did paint something like this a while back just much larger. I liked it so much, I wanted to see if I could do it again… Summer Days is available in all my shops, Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.
I love the variety of colours in this painting. I don’t often use bright pinks, but I think I will be from now on – they contrast beautifully with oranges and greens. I think I may have found a new favourite colour.
I once saw a bank of hollyhock flowers in the wild. They were all sorts of colours, dark pink, light pink, white, red and deep purple. I am building up to painting them – I took photos – but in the meantime, here is a pale pink hollyhock plant that is currently living in my garden.
