I was sitting on the decking, having a cup of tea and the sun shone brightly onto a pot of begonias. I was going to do this very loosely with only a couple of flowers picked out, but I liked the shadow on the container and included that. Once there was structure here the whole thing tightened up. Hopefully I have captured some of the sprawling, haphazard array of colours without it getting too fussy.
There are other flower paintings on my website grahammcquadefineart.com
