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.
