Oil on panel 4x6" (sold)
I painted this back in June, just as all the flowers were starting to come out on the allotment.
I felt the need to get on and paint them because time is so short and I never get to do all the paintings I'm hoping too in each season.
I stayed up late to paint this little study under the studio lights, and I'm glad I did as I still haven't got round to doing a larger painting containing these flowers.
The posy contains nasturtiums, roses, sweet peas, cornflowers, calendula and nigella.
I am a realist painter, working in oils, painting landscape and still life.
