Peach Amaryllis in soft pastels


Peach Amaryllis painting by Marion Hedger
40x50cm (16"x20") soft pastels on sanded card

This painting is from a photo I took at a local village flower festival, where the entire village was decked out in flowers including all the rooms in the chateau. These amarylis were hanging up-side-down along the large sweeping staircase - a truly breathtaking display.

I can see the attraction Marion - a lovely painting (and back to the softies too!)

That's beautiful! Love the color of the flowers -- they look so soft and sweet smelling!

Re: Peach Amaryllis in soft pastels

Thank you all for your comments.

Maureen, I actually painted this awhile ago but never posted it. It does make me want to get those softies out again though. Now that it's warmer and I can paint outside so the dust is not so bad, I'll do some pastels. I do miss the feel of them.

Re: Peach Amaryllis in soft pastels

This is beautiful. I love the background color you choose - complements the flowers very nicely. The flowers are just beautiful - flowing with lots of emotion.

Very pretty, the color is beautifully done and I must say the way they were hung upside down makes for a great comp, stunning.
