Apricot Twist, 4 June 2013

Painting of an Apricot Twist by Simon Birtall

Another beautiful day and another opportunity to spend a little time sketching in the garden. This sketch was painted in acrylics on watercolour paper. It is a little smaller than A5 in size, and took around an hour to complete. I’ve depicted a plant bought recently at Trebah Garden in Cornwall, a beautiful Erysimum ‘Apricot Twist’.
