I enjoyed painting this hollyhock with the cast shadows and the lovely deep pink centres the other day. It didn't take long as it is small format at 26 cm x 17 cm. I just wanted to capture those shadows!
Latest news is that I am having my operation in early January and so with any luck should be recovered by late March 2013 ready to start some classes again. I will let you know as soon as I have some definite dates.
