To paint flowers

Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is. 
Jackson Pollock.

Nasturtiums, every garden should have some. 
And you should have this painting! 

To use waterpaint when painting flowers is such a joy! Here are two of my latest and simple watercolour paintings.

The Quiver Tree is probably the most spectacular aloe species that is found in South Africa because of its sculptural form. Aloe dichotoma, also known as Quiver tree or Kokerboom (Afrikaans), is a species of aloe indigenous to Southern Africa.

My latest paintings

Sometimes a person makes him- or herself believe they can't do a certain thing! For me it was always a challenge to paint a face. 

I enjoy painting landscapes: trees, water, clouds. Then one day, I tried something new! Faces. After painting three different faces, I longed to paint trees again. Life is interesting. 

I'm happy to share my work and hope you enjoy it too! Thanks for visiting my blog.
