W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – no preliminary sketching
Flowers in a vase on my kitchen table – Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa

A fine and subtle spirit dwells
In every little flower,
Each one its own sweet feeling breathes
With more or less of power.
There is a silent eloquence
In every wild bluebell
That fills my softened heart with bliss
That words could never tell.

- Extract from ‘The Bluebell’ – Anne Bronte

I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country.

    This is so beautiful, Maree. The bits of yellow add so much!

  • I thought that left-hand corner looked a bit bland Dot, so I decided to bring some of the yellow through and it worked! Thanks a lot for adding it to your favs, much appreciated!
