Glorious Fall by Ruth S Harris

Every colour of the rainbow can be seen in natures most spectacular show every Autumn. It’s so much fun to paint!

Watercolours (W&N, M Graham, Daler Rowney) on Fabriano Artistico extra white, cold pressed watercolour paper.

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”.
