Fresh Flowers

I have been using my ipad pro to work digitally manipulating my latest oil painting. This is now the inspiration for a large acrylic which I will be starting on tomorrow - so exciting...


Spring Forth...

I read this on the Moon Tree blog this week - what inspiring thoughts...
 
"Feb 2nd is Imbolc and as the Sun grows stronger, Springs first stirrings can be felt.
Imbolc is a Celtic fire festival and commemorates the changing of the Goddess from Crone to Maiden and celebrates the first signs of Spring as energy returns to the surface and the Sun begins to build it’s strength again.
You may notice a few shoots popping their heads, and you may notice a few buds on the trees, it’s a time to dust yourself off and begin to put into place a few things to support your energy, health and wellbeing.
Imbolc brings new projects and new inspirations into our view and we happily welcome green back into our world."
So here is my Imbolc inspired work from this week to accompany this and inspire me onto my yoga mat to give thanks for lighter longer days full of promise ...


In the Flow with the Delphiniums

Here is another of my Delphinium series ready to go off to the framers. This has been done with watercolours, gouache, gold ink and finishing touches of pastel to get the vibrant blue on those petals...

Flowing Blues

Delphiniums plus Peonies! Lucky me...

This pastel painting started off as a charcoal drawing but the lure of those sticks of colour soon won and the pastels came into play. I wanted to create a dark background on this piece to make the colours of the flowers stand out. I really enjoyed using similar dark tones together to create the deeper passages...




Delphinium Blue

Just loving these delphs still... Peonies next week :)


Cobalt Blue Delphiniums

Today I have been painting with an uplifting selection of blues and purples as I respond to the colour of these glorious delphiniums...


Spring Floral with Agapanthus

I seem to have a thing about citrus colours at the moment!
