Lazy Daisies by Ruth S Harris

I painted this one a few months ago and thought I’d already posted it here, but apparently not!

White ox-eye daisies grow very tall in my garden, then seem to lose strength and droop down, having bit of a rest.

Watercolours on Fabriano Artistico extra white 140lb cold pressed paper, the original work measures 15″ × 11″

I have a passion for watercolours and love to play with colour, exploring the effect of combining pigment and water on the paper. Challenging the traditional view that watercolours are pale and washy, I love vibrant colour used in exciting combinations. I am especially drawn to flowers, their three dimensional forms presenting endless challenges.

I won the SAA Amateur Artist of the Year 2012 for my painting “Cosmic Poppies”.
