Hi all
I’ve just finished this painting of some foxgloves which has kept me sane during this lockdown.

Thank you for looking.

It’s so beautiful, the way the foxgloves stand proud at the front of the picture, and you just know the stems are moving in a breeze.
The smudged sky suggests a breeze is blowing the clouds also as their edges are undefined. I love it Purple,
you should be very proud of it,

Lovely painting thanks PurplePixie smile.
We had some like that at the front of our house (don't know where they came from) but they didn't last long.
A painting like yours keeps them going forever.

Its very good Purple. Love the movement in it. I often use Clingfilm for backgrounds and am just getting the hang of salt. Do you use candle wax?
