calicantus

© JANE MINTER 
"calicantus"
chimonanthus
watercolour study 
painted from life 

...the delicate scent of the small winter flowers from  our calicantus tree has disappeared now as the yellow flowers are fading fast  .....i painted this initial study a few weeks ago outside when it was in full bloom.

Janne, I am in awe at what you can achieve with so little . One shade, a few essential facts, and a little masterpiece is born .You make me want to start washes- and who knows ,I might.
