Day 3 of the 30 Day Challenge, Prunus

Day 3. Prunus spinosa collected during a lovely trip to Norfolk last week,  August 28th. Managed to paint a tiny piece today. Would have liked to have done a more of the branch but at least I managed a mini study as part of the challenge....not the easiest thing to paint in a hurry because of the bloom.

From walk along  the river Waveney, bursting with berries....I like this place!
Colours: Fruit: Indanth blue + perm magenta
For the shade areas + neutral tint
add small amount of raw umber on the slightly green / brown areas.
Chinese white used for the bloom mixed with small amount of cobalt blue in the more blue areas.


  1. Beautifully painted plums! And fun to see them in their habitat too. The lush colors and textures of the berries, plums, ferns must have been most inspiring!

  2. Beautiful!!!
    I have joined in with you challenge, am one day behind you :)
