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.
On Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2022, I'll be at the Malvern Autumn Show.
While I am there I will be starting and working on a painting of some locally grown flowers.
It will be an A3 piece, on watercolour paper, drawn in pen and ink and coloured with watercolour.
I am doing this so people can see how I produce my work - and because I love seeing other artists at work when I'm visiting places!
I have decided to create this piece as a raffle prize, and so for the price of £1 you can be in with a chance of winning the painting.
Hello! The second March meet the maker blog post. Today I'm going to cover the posts that have happened since I was last here as I haven't been posting on Instagram this year.
So, we have 5 prompts today -
- Newest make
- Work in progress
- Learning curve
- Small detail
Here we go!
I took a chair, a cushion, my watercolour paper, paints and some coloured pencils and along with my vase of flowers and an audio book I spent some blissful time sketching away in what felt like a little bubble.
