Two new botanical paintings have just been added online, work that I have completed over the past couple of weeks. Botanical subjects seem to be my “thing” at the moment, possibly because of my new-found passion for gardening, also because I am preoccupied with a scheme to print some of my work to fabric to turn into soft furnishings and so on and botanical themes seem to lend themselves particularly well to what I have in mind. I have a printer lined up so watch this space for all new “applied art” in the very near future.
I have a long-standing love of hydrangeas and I intend to paint more very soon. The wisteria came from the stunning display that I photographed on my recent visit to Woodbridge, photos taken of a house down Angel Lane over Easter; the blossom was so profuse that I wasn’t the only person stopping to marvel at it or take photographs! To see the full series of photos that I took, follow the link below.
