They might be considered weeds by many gardeners, but I think they’re delightful and really cheer up a boring green lawn! I used to love picking them to make daisy chain necklaces.

Watercolours on Fabriano Artistico extra white cold pressed paper.

The original work measures 7″ × 7″

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”.

    Personally I love daisies. My wife I think has tried to slowly eliminate the daisies from her flower beds and every year we a small corner of them to return, which is just fine by me because I love to paint them as well. Truly a lovely watercolour Ruth.

    Daisies are about the only flowers that flourish in my gravelly soil, so I adore them! This is fabulous Ruth.
