    Lupino

    As the title says. I think its lupine in English. Itīs a common flower here and in the summer and spring you can see large groups of many colors all over the city.

    I donīt know what Iīm going to do with this. I started out a week ago, thinking Iīd fill the canvas with several. After a couple of hours a day for a week, now Iīm not so sure. :wink: Iīve never really tried my hand at flowers and I didnīt realize the many nuances involved.

    Again this is using only chalk and the smooth palette knife for blending.

    Nice, delicate, elegant, delicious, trasparent colours; just magic!
    I don't now much about flower, but the term "lupino" in Italian indicate a sort of thicker coin size yellow salty seed You eat after biting a side and pressing to peel away the external part (You may eat it as well).

    Thanks for kind words, Caesar and Rick!

    Yes, the flower suggests spring. However, here we are in autumn, and itīs been snowing in the mountains making the roads impassible except with chains.
