‘Proteas 1′ was inspired by a floral arrangement sent on the passing of my mother. They were delivered in a white, rectangular ceramic vase and I just had to try to capture them in a way that worked with the delicate way they dried.
Ultimately, I resorted to one of my favourite methods of painting: watercolour first, ink after, although I did outline gently in pencil first. I wasn’t committed to having solid fields of colour – hence the ’empty’ leaves in the background.
This original artwork has a generous border for matting when framing. It was completed on Arches 300 gsm rough watercolour paper and measures 42 cm high by 29.7 wide (A3 size).
