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.
As you might be aware, I attended Malvern Autumn Show at the end of September. I thought it might be nice to be drawing while there and to sell raffle tickets so someone could win the final picture (more about this in my previous blog post).I thought I'd write this follow up post to show how the painting turned out. Here you can see the painting part way through, with the winning raffle ticket and the final piece!
