Foxglove

Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea)
There are quite a few foxgloves blooming right now in my yard and I have been trying to paint them for the last three days. They proved quite difficult for me, with too many distracting details. Here I tried to ignore the color variations and the  fascinating sprinkles on the inside of each bell and focused solely on the shapes.

Wow Blaga, you did a great job! I think Digitalis must be very difficult to paint because they are so divided into small flowers if you know what I mean.

They are beautiful! Foxgloves are very difficult to paint, I tried but couldn't do it.
