Artist's Description

Watercolour 32×24cm Artists watercolours on 140lb cold press paper.

These nasturtiums were growing in my herb garden last summer. They are “designer flowers” I always think, their shape is so strong and graphic, the leaves and tendril-like stalks as well as the flowers. Their colours are so gorgeous. They were often used in art nouveau designs.
I am drawn to them and embark on a painting but then remember that they are quite difficult flowers to capture! But I can’t resist the way their pale green stalks and leaves overlap and run in and out of each other making lovely crevices of darkness to contrast with the oranges and yellows.
