Tell us a little more about your inspiration. I love hydrangeas and I absolutely love to paint them. Although there is always a lot of work involved. All these tiny petals. Usually I always go into a garden center and buy a hydrangea and do a lot of photos in hope to use several for a painting. I found this hydrangea in France and I immediately loved it. Couldn't wait until I got time to paint it.

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This pink hydrangea is painted on 140 Lb cold pressed paper. I used mostly Schmincke Watercolours and Daniel Smith Colours. A brush with a good point is also very important. Important is also that I used only transparent colours to work with layers as I love to build the colours carefully.

This is so beautiful I cant take my eyes off it! I also have several pictures of my hydrangeas, as well as the beautiful blooms of my Rose of Sharon, when I see paintings like this I think I'll never give up, one day I'll get it right!
