Artichoke flower

Lovely, a forum just for flowers




this is a beautiful, huge artichoke flower - I'd not seen them before, they were in some gardens I visited with friends, sketching, I'd love to be able to grow them but my garden isn't big enough.

Re: Artichoke flower

Aren't they impressive? And you've done a lovely job capturing one, too.

Re: Artichoke flower

Yes, they have a wonderful abstract quality to them. You have captured it so well here. Really like your palette!!

Re: Artichoke flower

Very nice Vivien - nice colour and love the concentration/close crop.
How big is the painting? - and what on what?

Re: Artichoke flower

thank you all

it's a very small painting - about 5ins - it's in a small heavyweight cartridge paper sketchbook - at sometime I'd like to do a very large one of it, maybe 3 or 4 foot square
