Another South African Floral Painting Idea, WIP

Hi Everyone,
Worked on some sketches today for my next floral painting. Going to do another floral of the beautiful red hot aloe pokers growing at our home here in Johannesburg, South Africa.   They bloom about this time every year and are so stunning. Coming from Canada I had never seen them, When I first saw them bloom, I knew I had to paint them.  They are just gorgeous and one of my fav plants.   They are native to South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. I just love them.
