Blue Shadows White Hydrangeas was one of seven class demonstrations completed during my three day workshop that ended Sunday in North Texas. We studied white flowers, starting with white irises and ending with white hydrangeas, on the first two days. I love painting white flowers, there are so many colors you can put into white petals, into the shadows and the highlights both. The white irises for our class paintings were cut directly from my iris garden, which was in full bloom this morning. Here are a couple of iris photos for you, including one starring my little garden helper, Howard Pee Pugpants himself!

 I love having a lot of different
colors mixed together!

 My garden flag was waving proudly!

Oh look at that handsome cuddly snuggly boyfriend o' mine!! He's so gorgeous! Love the painting too, especially the total palette and how it comes together in this hydrangea.

Lovely photos. The hydrangea painting is beautiful and I love the softness. Howard looks awesome too. :)
