Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

I just love the beautiful intense colour and vivid green frilly collars of these lovely anemones. They are so special. I just can’t stop painting them – each time slightly varying the style that I use. Tried to “mess this one up” a bit and think I succeeded! I find it quite tricky to try and get that lovely intense purple, but at the same time keeping it transparent, in the way that the flower manages to do so effortlessly!

Nature is my passion and inspiration for my art. I started out by photographing it, but now I love to paint it as well.
I have been painting with watercolour for many years now, and I am still amazed and continually excited by this most magical of mediums. I’m still on my journey of discovery; a journey which I hope will never end. Every time I pick up my paintbrush I wonder where the paint will lead me.
Another magical medium, which I am enthralled by, is encaustics.

    Mmmmmm Lovely

  • Hi Bev, thanks for your lovely feedback. Hhmm, still a tad botanical isn’t it? Tried to stay loose and messy, but just couldn’t get my head around it. (Think I was concentrating so hard on the colour). So tried to mess it up a bit at the end – and did! Good excuse to keep painting!
