I was inspired to do this watercolour painting by a beautiful hawthorn tree in my garden which is like a bridesmaid of nature during spring when it is covered from head to foot in a white – slightly tinted with pink – vale of delicate blossom.
I took some photos of the blossom while it was still out, and then did this painting from one of my photographs. As always, I feel that watercolours are the best medium to convey the pretty nature of flowers so this is what I chose.
I enjoyed doing this painting and I hope you like the result. The blossom in my garden has been taken by the harsh grip of wind now, but I still have this painting, and photograph, to remind myself of the beautiful flowers until it returns next spring. 🌸🎨
