Orchids

more flowers, not trashed by the cat.....
too large to scan, maybe it is time to invest in an A3 scanner
32 x 41 cm watercolour





















Hibiscus

....work stopped due to the cat sitting on the paper and adding extra texture to the watercolour paper.
 Note to self, cover/remove all paintings when leaving the room!
