Foxglove Summer by Ruth S Harris

I played with line, texture and negative painting to create this watercolour of white and pink foxgloves.

The original work measures 11″ × 15″ and is painted on 300gsm Artistico extra white 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”.
