  • Original Cut Flower pieces for Herefordshire Art Week

    I thought I’d keep a record of the work that I put together for Herefordshire Art Week 2023 that was exhibited at Aardvark Books in Brampton Bryan. This is a series of my ‘cut flower’ pieces - with the species being individually painted by hand (drawn in ink and then coloured with watercolour) and then cut out, ever so slowly and carefully, using a scalpel.  
  • The Hellebores

    I did three studies, three separate stems, and cut each of these out. Here they are in the garden - it was useful to look at them in pure natural light against other ones, to check my colours and scale. 
  • Snowdrops - 2023 version

    It's not really a surprise that I have, once again been excited by the snowdrops this year. 

    I've drawn them before - yes. Many, many times. But that doesn't take anything away from them. I still like drawing them. I like looking at them, working out their structure and shapes and colours (yes green and white but the colours and shades within those colours too!).
