I began this painting from life about three weeks ago but was distracted by some need and the flowers wilted away before I could return. Apparently I had the sense to snap a photo of it, which I located recently and thus I completed the painting. I love the way the reddish leaves cup the delicate blossoms.
It's on ART P-400, which is a sandpaper made for pastels. It actually 'grabs' the gouache nicely, though it's tough on my brushes.
