My first painting done during the pandemic after a break of nearly 15 years. A large piece painted with of joy of painting again after such a long break and with optimism despite the ongoing lockdowns.

This is a painting of Paeonia 'Coral Charm', captured it as the flower has fully opened and as the coral colour is fading.

This Quick Fire Hydrangea panicle was dried before I started sketching and painting it. I noticed beautiful clusters of fertile florets that stood proud from the larger more prominent sterile florets. The aging and dried state of these two types of florets was what I was most interested in showcasing in this painting.

It is an plant found at the Korea Forest Botanical Garden. Korea has four seasons. Every season is a plant that changes and size. Like a femme fatale. I became interested in this part. It is a plant with a hard stem and strong leaf color. Especially, the darkness of purple is the most attractive.

A lovely herbaceous perennial - quite hard to grow where I live. Also, anything with green "flowers" has my vote. I love that the petals are reduced to yellow filaments and the bracts take centre stage in framing the reproductive parts. Always a joy, surprise and relief when the Paris shows itself after a long winter. I hoped to capture the sun bouncing off the leaves and play on light that resulted on all the contours while still being botanically accurate. Loved painting this plant and I hope my joy shines through.

I bought this orchid for my Mum many years ago for Mother’s Day, since when it has flourished and been divided many times.
I drew it in her conservatory when the light provided a stunning tonal contrast and it was this wonderful chiaroscuro that I was keen to capture. My mum was able to watch me drawing and see the image not many years before she passed on, and I know sure would have been very proud when it was shown in the Society of Botanical Artists exhibition this year at the Mall.
This drawing was also exhibited at the Society of Graphic Fine Art in 2021.

This vine is located in an abandoned vineyard on the escarpment behind our cottage on land which once belonged to the farm.

Helleborus spec., Ranunculacea

I appreciate and love the plant family of Ranunculace very much. It is considered as a very original plant family. When this Helleborus hybrid caught my eye, I was immediately fascinated by the rich petal colour and the contrast of its nectar leaves and stamens. Especially, I love and care for plants in my garden, that provide for insects. This Hellebore flowers very early in spring and feeds early insects. I enjoyed the lovely balanced colour contrast of this beautiful flower while painting this traditional inspired portrait.

This decaying leaf shows the richness of autumnal colours in their full splendour. The seeds of this tree are used for the game of conkers.
