These tiny flowers fell off an Erysimum Mutabile, bought yesterday at Norton Priory’s plant fair. They’re now living in a jam jar. I’ve never seen a plant like this before. The flowers bloom yellow and gradually turn purple over time. The combination of yellows and purples on the same plant is gorgeous.
This is a watercolour painting on watercolour paper, something like A4 in size. I’ve also added some pencil, particularly in the over-worked, upper area. I’m hoping to have time to do an oil painting of this plant while it’s looking so stunning. Hopefully that might do it a little more justice. Though I guess you can’t improve upon nature really.
