Painting with plants

I am focusing in on plant color and texture right now.

I have had the opportunity to visit the personal garden of the owners of Potomac Waterworks twice, once in the Fall and once in Spring. I mean, what a lovely garden! My inner 8 year old wants to live there with the fairies and unicorns and so does my outer 40 yr old. :)

Not only is it a technically marvelous construction project but it is the most thoughtful and beautiful landscape painting I have ever stepped into.

This is a watercolor painting I did based on a photo I took:

While there are many “rules” you can learn and follow around color and texture in the garden you really have to be an artist to accomplish this.
