Purple Allamanda

purple allamandaToday I searched through the web photos of flowering vines until I found the Allamanda, the flower I painted a few days ago in Arizona.  I’m not quite certain about the varietal though.  There are many types and apparently the color of their blooms depends on the soil conditions to a great extent.  This photo was labelled “purple alamanda” and it looks exactly like the ones I painted from. 

I’ve been a bit under the weather for a couple of days but I hope to be back painting again tomorrow.  The term “under the weather” was an interesting choice of words given that I’ve just returned to the cold north from the hot south.  Under the blankets would have been accurate too…
