Rhododendron – finished
This is a contribution to the June challenge of the Botanic/Floral Forum over at Wet Canvas. The reference photo was provided in the challenge thread.
I find rhododendrons very difficult to paint because of their frilly petals. I took the artistic license to simplify the reference. The last step of the process was to dip one of my very small paper stumps into a bit of baby oil and use it as a solvent.
