Peacock Leaf in Orange


This wonderful Peacock Leaf in Orange is captured here in watercolour. The more official name for this plant is the Calathea. I bought the plant at a florist, Greenka, local to me in Ealing:

I painted Peacock Leaf in Orange  against a ‘Midnight navy’ painted wall to make the orange really ‘zing.’

Enjoying the fact the leaf has a plant or tree shape contained within itself I focussed on the detail within the leaf. Nature never ever fails to amaze. This was a joy to paint.
