4x5in pencil on linen card SOLD
Here are the buds all opening up and the first large petunia
is starting to wilt. I now have four flowers and another
bud is starting to grow in-between the two
middle trumpet shapes.
It amazes me that a cutting can keep growing and
blooming in the water...dark water now!
Petunias are beautiful and hardy flowers, but I never
appreciated their beauty until I drew them.
Now - back to oils!
