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.
Lots of interest in my work at this busy craft fair in Leatherhead over the weekend, with some good card sales.
Two of my small paintings off to new homes this week along with the Swiss Meadow painting below following the NDBA exhibition in Leatherhead.
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’.

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.
