September has been hectic, with two more visits to The Kington Gallery, and making arrangements for my youngest daughter to move to University in South Wales. I have managed to complete two watercolours though (I think I'd go mad without painting!)
First I painted these crocuses which were a joyful sight earlier this year, after a very hard winter.
Then I was inspired to return to macro florals after visiting the studio of Peter Horrocks in Kington, Herefordshire. His work is fascinating, abstracts "painted" with pure earth pigments rubbed onto the support in layers.
I chose a single gladiolus flower which had wonderful lighting, great to paint in this exciting medium!
