    Two possibles that spring to my mind are Schizanthus and Penstemons. 

    Do you know when the painting was done?  Schizanthus were very popular with amateur gardeners who had a greenhouse in the first half of the 20C.

    Penstemons?

  • It was done in 1979. I did it at school in Essex and imagine the flowers must have come from somebody's garden. Maybe Penstemons.

    The stems look very thick for penstemons
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    • The flowers look very much like penstemon. Maybe the leaves are made up. It happens😉

    No, I just wanted a name for the picture.

    I'll go with Penstemons. It's quite possible that I only paid attention to the flowers and just made up the rest.
