Coneflower by Ruth S Harris

A single pink echinacea flower painted in watercolour on a white background…. simple and elegant.

The original work measures 5.5″ × 7.5″ and is painted on Fabriano Artistico 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”.
