A quick update on my never-ending watercolour painting.  This is number 12 in my learning curve.  As you will see from this post I have been painting this for some time but if I am honest it not that long since we didn’t have  any classes from July to the end of September.

Anyway, this evening the stems started to go in which was just the lift I needed as I have been fiddling around with the leaves for ever and my enthusiasm has waned.  Leaves are not popular amongst us ‘botanical’ painters they are quite tedious and hard to get right.

Close  up the stems are a little wobbly as my hand kept shaking but never mind I think these are only noticeable really close up.

My goal is to finish it by Christmas especially as I’m not sure I can go to the classes next term.
