Though inspiration may be discovered far and vast, many people have discovered “diamonds in personal yard”. There may be nice inventive advantages to portray a extra intimate and private world all through the adjustments of sunshine and season. 

   Franklin writes, “I like portray flowers and I develop most of the flowers which might be inspirations for my work. Most of the flowers are in pots which I can transfer round till I discover the most effective composition and lighting. I work on linen canvas panels and largely use bristle brushes. I begin with a wash, very gentle in worth, all around the canvas. The colour of the wash is decided by the over all scene. I begin with a sketch and design the composition with focal space my first consideration. I work darkish to gentle and skinny to thick.”

   “I plant hollyhocks and peonies in my backyard as a result of they’re my favorites and I do love portray them as nicely.”
