Red camellia – a painting a day

6″x6″ 15cm x 15cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

I cut the camellia flowers at my mum’s house, things are further out there, here we are on the edge of a frost pocket. It’s drawn life size; these really are big and in your face red. She sat and did the cross word while I painted and told me that I was going to regret launching a painting a day as it would be too demanding. I got out a tube of red to help me get closer to the red here, the reds in the pans fall one either side of this red.

Geography course work came back finally, son who has no ability with tact said “Why did it take so long to mark?” He was told that there was a reason and that the reason would be given to his mother….she is waiting.
