Arrow February Plant Parade

FEBRUARY PLANT PARADE

Hello everyone, I'm Lil and will be hosting the parade this month, hope to see many interested plant lovers here too.
There are few rules:
Any medium
Any size
Reveal day for posting is 25th February or any day after that.

We can discuss the subject, offer additional references for others, ask advice but we may not show any work associated with the challenge!!

This month we're using a flower that happily blooms gorgeously during the winter months (mostly indoors) and doesn't like it too hot! Strange, because it looks so delicate and pretty and seems summery!

(I did have something else in mind for instance the African Violet but I think you will like doing the Amaryllis I have chosen here.

AMARYLLIS

This is from my own plant, so you're welcome to use it.

This one is from the RIL from lizirish.

Another from the RIL by Dewi, so lovely in red/orange.

From RIL by Skappy, another beauty to choose from.

Re: February Plant Parade

Thank you Artsymom. A really sumptuous flower to cheer the cold, bleak British winter.

Re: February Plant Parade

Thank you everyone for your comments and glad you like my choice, the amaryllis. My plant bloomed already and is now dying but I found out on the web how to care for these flowers now and later on.

Re: February Plant Parade

It's still early in the month and I sure hope no one has forgotten about this challenge. Looking forward to seeing some more flower painters join in this month. I've already started on my amaryllis and may do one more.

Re: February Plant Parade

Well, everyone another week to go before I start to see all the lovely paintings of the amaryllis. Looking forward to that, until then happy painting. Already have one painting done and may try another. See you on the 25th.

Re: February Plant Parade

Hi everyone, I'm home from holiday

We had a great time, and by the time we'd driven my little car to Tauranga Airport to catch the plane home, we had driven it over 2,000kms - a very long way for a little car, and not a thing went wrong with it! Our grandaughter was overwhelmed to receive it, as she didn't know we were bringing it up for her.
Dear little car. I only hope my new one is as good!

We drove right up the South Island and caught the Ferry to the North Island of New Zealand. I was dreading the Ferry trip, as I'm not a good sailor, but it was a beautiful day, the sea was calm and the scenery was stunning.
Thought you might like to see a photo.


Sorry Lil I'm off topic, but I thought members wouldn't mind just this once.
I'll try to get something done for this PP, as I haven't been able to do any artwork for a few weeks. I'd intended to sketch as we went, but it didn't happen.

Re: February Plant Parade

Hi Viv, so glad you had a great time and managed to drive far with your little car. It's great to get away, isn't it. Hope your new car is just as good. Hope you get to paint soon for it's almost the end of the month. Imagine you're all the way around the world from me, I can imagine it must be beautiful there.
