BOTANICALS

 

I love the layers, shapes, colours and tangling of foliage and flowers.  I was first inspired to paint flowers during a visit to Monet's Garden in Giverny, particularly how the flowers silhouetted against the pond.  Since then I have included a dramatic interpretation by using a black backdrop to make the flowers pop. 

 

Four of these paintings made it through to the Society of Botanical Artists Exhibition 'Plantae' 2020.
