I’m a watercolour artist and art tutor from Nottingham, UK. I love painting flowers particularly and sharing techniques with others as I really rate this wonderful medium. I have written two watercolour tips and techniques books which demonstrate the way I like to use watercolour.

    Instant favourite. I love poppies, especially the beauty of the seed heads. They look like an intricate piece of art themselves.

  • Yes, like little sculptures, perfect in their form. I so agree. Thank you Claudia!

    Breathtaking! Who would have thought dead flowers could look so beautiful!

  • Ha yes, indeed. The poppies that I know YOU love so much live on in their architectural perfection in these seed heads. Thanks Ruth!
