Christmas Camellia - Still Life

I have mentioned before that I walk my dogs - everyday morning, noonish (when I am home), and evening. I notice so many beautiful blooms in the neighbors' gardens that just seem irresistible. 

There are many varieties of camellia and can be challenging to paint because of their perfect symmetry; I think this one lends itself to a less rigid style.

The Yuletide Camellias are not in bloom right now - not until later in the year. The leaves are used to make tea, and this plant also provides oil for many uses.

Hope you enjoy it.
