Nigella


I've not been able to post much so far this month, thanks to pressure of real life (boo!). But I hope to put that right with a flurry of posts over the next few days! Here is a watercolour of a Nigella, a lovely blue flower with delicate leaves and attractive seedpods. I'm trying to work in a very loose style. This was done in five minutes or so.

Oh so pretty. Soft and beautiful and even dreamy. I love this. isn't it funny how sometimes our quick WC's look so wonderful. Must be because we don't overthink it-just do it.

Wow Dave! I really love this! And 5 minutes -- I need one of those drop jaw smilies. I'd say your attempts at a loose style are paying off. Beautiful!

Karen said...

It is very loose and light!
I'll bet it was fun to do, wasn't it?

It looks like a greeting card -soft and dreamy!

Very loose. Very beautiful.

Dave it's beautiful.
Are these also called 'Love in a mist'?

Katherine said...

I thought you;d been a bit quiet! This is a very nice study.

Flurry away!

Dave said...

Thanks for the nice comments!

Anita yes it is also called love in a mist; lovely name, isn't it?

I love these...in real life as well as in your painting. You've really gave them a "misty" appearance and beautiful soft color!

One of my absolute favourite flowers. Think this really captures their ethereal quality. Yummy!
