I like BRIGHT colours and they don’t get much brighter and showier than a bunch of Rudbeckias. I’m often tempted to take my camera out into the garden to photograph with the prospect of painting. But it doesn’t often happen !

Usually I am doing something else and by the time I have finished it’s meal time or I’m too tired, or more often the sun has disappeared behind the biggest black cloud ever seen.

I really like flowers, but not to paint. So this is a rarity for me. Swathes of orange and yellow applied with gusto, with that huge dark centre containing all those arranged ‘ dots ‘.

I like it but it’s rather GAUDY, rather MESSY, with some flowers on their ‘ last legs ‘ and with the darker mottled under painting.

But it is COLOURFUL ! ! ! And I still like it !
