I have had these cyclamen sitting around for a while, thinking of painting them and scared witless because my man Freud did the definitive one, who could improve.... so because I could not face the stocks again, I had a go. Really fun after all. They are sort of fleshy. I also had a new creative mark brush (do not buy!) which the hairs all fell out of as I worked, infuriating, however it is a bristle filbert. It's always a shakeup when there is a material or tool change. I'm interested in getting the rhythm down of those leaves because that makes the whole plant interesting, not just those other worldly blossoms.
