Camellia original art watercolor floral flower painting red

Crimson Camellia

Original watercolor painting of a red peony form camellia by Rose Ganucheau.

It was cold brisk day at the New Hanover County Arboretum.  I was struck by not only the intensity of the red camellias with there perfect pompoms of central petals, but by the amazing contrast between the dense cool shade of the bushes against leaves, so shiny, they were like mirrors reflecting the sky.

Work:10 x 14,  Framed
