Oh wau, I would have never guess this to be in watercolor. What a lovely painting!

I am looking forward to your rose blog!

Thanks Enzie. These were such a talented family - I hope one day someone writes a book on them. They deserve it.

I saw this painting in the Guildhall Art Gallery's Age of Elegance exhibiton and was entranced by it. I can't believe it's a watercolour. There's definitely scope for a biography about the Hayllar family...
