I once had lessons with a teacher who thought that too much jacaranda colour in a painting would be a bit sickening - she may have been right! At least it's a small painting...

Jacarandas in oil
I hope you aren't very tired of these blossoms - I've been trying them in oils on small 25x25cm masonite panels, primed with gesso. I was thinking that they might go down well with the locals (at the Art & Craft Fair) who would be familiar with these scenes, as well as giving me some much needed practise in landscape painting. That bright pink bit is a bougainvillea.
