The Twelve Months of Christmas – Day 12 December’s Shining Star


December’s Shining Star, Original Silk Painting, Framed size 30 x 30 cm

£95 including P&P – Limited Edition Prints Available

What other flower could I possibly do for December but the wonderful hellebore. When everything else in the garden is looking pretty dull these little fellows pop up and show us their exquisite beauty. And there are so many different varieties all with their own special charms. For me this little plant really is the shining star of December. I decided to use resistad (a colourless resist) instead of gutta on these guys so as not to overwhelm their delicate petals. What do you think? 

I apologise for the poor quality photo today. I finished painting too late to take a photo in daylight.

I’ve really enjoyed my little 12 day project again this Christmas. It’s made me think a lot about the seasons and I’ve had a few technical challenges along the way. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at the results and I look forward to seeing some of you over the coming year.

Best wishes,
