Warmth of the Mediterranean Sun

Lavender, giving a fragrant greeting in the rock planter by the door, is blocked in with several combinations of Magenta + White, Magenta + Dioxazine Purple + White and Dioxazine Purple + White. Please remember, you may click on any image to see an enlargement.

White Hollyhocks, gently swaying in the soft sea breeze, reside on the other side of the doorway.

After adding the dark centers and yellow stamens to the Hollyhocks, Geraniums are planted in the Sevres Green Window Box. The blooms are blocked in with mixes of Cadmium Red Deep + Magenta, Cadmium Red Deep and Cadmium Red Deep + Cadmium Red Light. The foliage is made of Pthalo Blue + Lemon Yellow.

The addition of small buds give the Geraniums their distinctive appearance.

Silver Pony Foot Vine cascades out from under the Geranium leaves in the foreground container.

Cheerful Sunflowers fill the wicker basket on the table.
