So glad that I cut these blossoms and painted them before the intense heat hit here in North Carolina like it has in most areas of the country. Hydrangeas are such beautiful shrubs in the correct location in your landscape and mine have performed beautifully up to now. When I cut these flowers, I made sure to select slightly different colors, some are more lavender and some more blue-green.
I played with my transparent paints with this one and I am starting to use them more and more. I think the colors are much more vibrant and I am pleased with how this one turned out. Paint something beautiful from your gardens before the summer heat takes them away!
