Brights are all about. I went to a very fun and colourful bridal shower lunch on the weekend - this was the fabulously set table with bright blowsy roses, chevron stripe table runners, gold detailing and feather headdresses to boot. Looked amazing.
Then I happened upon my sister Harriette's immaculately-arranged-always-vignetted lounge room where she had these huge hibiscus flowers sitting front-and-centre.....
I had to paint some of these before Summer is out!
I am, however, starting to feel a bit flowered out at the moment so I welcomed the chance to paint a Chanel No.19 for a lovely client in Hong Kong which I have just shipped off. I love this crisp and light wash of this green in this one - but I must say, painting all these gorgeous bottles does nothing for narrowing the field in my eternal quest for that signature scent!
