Turkish Wild Flowers

We are blessed here with wild flowers and around now they begin to spring up in the fields, on the hills and especially on verges and similar bits of unused land. It’s not unusual to see a dozen new varieties if you walk for an hour, many of which you didn’t notice the previous week.

I am trying out a new pallette of Daniel Smith watercolours that I bought over from the UK, quite daring for me as I was far from mastering the previous selection!  There are only six, basically a warm and a cool primary, no secondaries or earth colours and this is one of several flower studies I have managed to complete this week.

I’ll post more tomorrow….
