6"x8" oils on hardboard

I took my pochade box with me on my usual walk through the Science Park near my home in Cambridge. It’s very well landscaped so I thought there be bound  to be something to paint. This composition was right beside me on a handy bench. The sun kept going in and out but most difficult was the fact that the light was falling flat on most of the blooms and that made the colouring and shading very subtle and difficult to capture. The flower in the bottom left corner is the best, and that’s because the lighting and shadow threw the shape into relief.
