I was well into this before I remembered to take a snap. My Amaryllis is about to burst forth so I looked back through my photos for one in full flower to complete this set, the last of the tiny squinty canvas boards*
I’ve painted into this to add variety to the colour range – the original has one massive red flower sitting in a deep green background which is a wonderful photo but doesn’t make much of a painting unless you’re into clean, graphical images. I’ve also used some of the film from last time which gives it a jungle look – I’d buy a skirt in that material! There’s no 3D in this one, the plant itself has no frills and there’s very little about it that isn’t robustly solid in appearance so I don’t think that would be appropriate. I’m letting it settle now to see if it needs anything else, other than leaving alone.
So if anyone has a birthday – hippeastrum to you, hippeastrum to you; amaryllis hippeastrum, hippeastrum to you!
*I’ve found another of the little perishers!
