Notes:
This watercolour shows two flowers of Petunia hybrida from South America, the commonly grown half-hardy annual, and an unidentified plant lower centre. Mackintosh left Glasgow in the early summer of 1914, and he and his artist-wife Margaret Macdonald went to stay in Walberswick. There Mackintosh produced a series of flower drawings, and a number of watercolour studies of the surrounding landscape, developing the themes and style of his Sussex and Kent drawings of 1909 and 1910.
