Magnolia Stellata by Ruth S Harris
Clear

The beautiful spring show of magnolia stellata is a delight to behold!

The original work measures 15″ × 11″ and is painted in Watercolours on Fabriano Artistico extra white 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”.

    LOVELY, Ruth!! The colors are so fresh, just as spring makes us feel!

  • Thanks Sally, I had fun painting the background but the shading on all those petals was a bit of a slog to be honest, I was glad to finish!

    I do so love the way you handle this media.. and your VISION!! One must have an idea of where you’re going to “take” the work and your “vision” is always flawless!!

  • Thank you Barb, that’s a lovely comment but I promise my vision is far from flawless, I make plenty of mistakes with composition and colour, you just never see them ;)
