flowers in pastelsAs the cold of winter begins to close in on us in the UK I thought it would be a good idea to finish off this pastel that I began on location in mid September in a flower nursery in Cornwall. 

There was such a riot of blooms and colours it was no good trying to paint each bloome - just an impression of each group of flowers. I spent quite a while walking around the subject trying to decide on a good angle. This was the best I could up with and I think it's OK. A great subject!
