This 8"x10" original gouache painting is on 140lb Arches coldpress watercolor paper.
A lovely friend/neighbor invited me over to her backyard to paint (socially distant of course, due to the current shelter in place). While painting her beautiful birds of paradise plant, I kept eyeing this simple scene with some potted plants. I loved the way light was shining through the wilted chives, and how the pots were on uneven ground. It felt so charming and real!
