Gone to pot

I’ve been into the paints again.

I mentioned the other week that my new Hibiscus needed a proper home, and I had an old terra cotta pot that was just the right size. But it was in definite need of a make-over, so I gave it a quick coat of white paint….

And settled in to work. A wash of blue here, some quick pencil sketches, some measured brush strokes, a coat or two of clear, and a few hours later….

There was a school of colourful Koi playing amongst the bubbles.

I think the Hibiscus looks happy in her new home.

And it will be a nice colourful addition for the house when she comes in for the winter.
