Visit to West Dean

Uncategorised Posted on 12 Jan, 2020 18:40

Last weekend I attended a course at West Dean College in Chichester entitled ‘Painting Texture and Detail in Nature’. This is a composition I worked on. I chose the subjects because the colours complimented each other and they made a pleasing composition.

The lovely poster advertising our exhibition with my yellow and red tulips featured on the far right and a view of the exhibition below.

I was delighted to sell the painting shown above based on wild flowers I drew on a walking holiday in Switzerland entitled ‘Flowers from Swiss Meadows’.

Sunflower Seed heads

These sunflowers were growing abundantly on an allotment. The seed heads are left for the birds to feed on during the winter months. I love the variety of blacks and browns in the dead stalks, leaves and heads which are quite complex to paint.

It’s October and time to paint another squash before they disappear for another year.
