French yellow rose

Rediscovering the red roses painting the other day, I was reminded that I had taken a whole bunch (!) of flower photographs when holidaying in France last September. We visited one of the many chateaux in the Loire Valley. Having explored the inside of the building, and the formal gardens, we came across another area tucked away which was full of the most beautiful flowers, fruit and vegetables. I have enough reference photos from that day to keep me painting for about a decade, I think.
