Blue Hydrangeas in Clay Pot

20x16 watercolor on Arches 140 lb cold press paper, drawn and painted from life. Although blue now they'll turn pink in our alkaline soil.

I love your Hydrangeas Kay. I always admire this flower but when I think how many petals there to paint it makes me feel dizzy ;).
You did a very good job.
Thank you,
Irina

Wow, this is delightful Kay! I love the way you have used so many different tones in the leaves, and the looseness of the flowers.
I guess this is only part of your painting, if not it's a shame you ran out of paper for the subject.

Thanks Irina and Frank.
No, I cropped as I drew it, did not run out of paper, just saw no need to show the entire pot.
