Watercolour on Montval
17 x 73 cm
A student in class bought in this cream Poinsettia
which took my fancy.
Breaking down the shapes that make up this wonderful flower…
what we think is the flower is in fact the top leaves of the plant called bracts.
This one happened to be a white variety.
The actual flowers are the small yellow buds found in the centre of these colourful leaves.
