This fabulous iris is in my pond and I look forward to its appearance every year. I went a bit mad with colour in the background but I think it works really well! Watercolours on Artistico extra white CP, the original work measures 13″ × 10″.
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”.
