These flowers were in my bouquet I had on for Valentines day 🙂
I like the wispy delicate buds and rich deep flower heads. I had a go at drawing it before thinking it would work as a coloured drawing. But the colours were so wishy washy compared to oils I had to then have a go at painting it! 
I kept it very simple with the detail of the flowers but emphasising the purple colours and using a light touch with the creamy buds.
