FOR SALE ON ETSY LEMONADAY  9″x4″ 23cm x 10.5cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

I am cheating here, I am off to visit my mother’s best friend in Shropshire so here is one I did earlier, I had to paint it while the flower was there as it wasn’t going to last. It’s a species Amaryllis and more insectoid than the big red ones raised so effectively in Holland. I have another one which is even stripier and very weird looking. Two days ago I finally saw the first butterfly of the year, a peacock, usually I see a brimstone butterfly first but no sign of one this year.
