Gardenia

A friend of mine said that they grow these flowers because of their fragrance, I think it's because they are so lovely. This is a watercolor that is 8"x10" on Strathmore paper using Daniel Smith watercolors.

Lovely gardenia! I also like them for their looks but they do have a great fragrance too.

Re: Gardenia

Thank you for your kind words. I find it's always easier to paint something for a friend than for myself.
