I brought this tiny wild begonia as an outdoor plant, but it seemed too small and delicate to withstand our cold winter. So it lives in a pot on its own plinth in my studio. Wild begonia have the most beautiful velvety, purple/greenleaves which, when you look underneath, are deep burgundy in colour. The tiny flowers appear in the spring – delicate pale pink hanging from a long stem. They are very different to their brash cultivated cousins! I painted several studies of this dainty little plant during a dark early spring.
Painted using Japanese coloured mineral inks and black Sumi on natural Washi paper, made from mulberry leaves. The chop mark, placed beneath my signature, means graceful.
