At last it is spring and the blossoms are out on the trees. I love this time of year, the change from the sleeping branches to the beautiful blossoms is incredible. Though I notice on the weather forecast it is predicting more cold weather and possibly snow.

The Youtube video I’ve put up this time is on painting a freesia blossom in watercolour. The freesia was originally from South Africa, its beautiful colours and sweet smells have made it popular here. It flowers in the spring and summer and comes in many different shades. The difficulty when painting it is getting the colours accurate in tone and as bright as in the actual flower.
