Eryngium in the middle

I picked out this bouquet because if the exotic eryngium blooms in the bunch. They are an almost iridescent purple/blue. They grew profusely in the garden of my previous home and they were always a great addition to any bouquet.

When it comes to painting flowers there is the botanical approach that can be almost scientific in its precision (example) and then there’s what I would call the emotional approach which I think is exemplified by Shari Blaukopf beautiful work (see this example). I also love David Hockney’s digital flower drawings and I’m a fan of the approach taken by Charles Rennie Macintosh (some examples here).

I’m still learning how to use the paint, brushes, paper — hopefully, my “approach” will develop, because I do love flowers.
