Campanula persicifolia

I balanced an old blue powder puff pot  with campanula on a glass so that I could paint it from underneath. I wanted to get the greeny blue of the glass with the blue flowers reflecting in the water. I only had a tiny postcard sized piece of watercolour paper to work on, so it was a bit of a fiddly job. The cyan I used for the pot never scans well, and I didn’t get the correct mauvy blue of the campanula. (Why are my posts so full of excuses!)
