Flowers

I love to paint flowers! The influence of their wild colours and patterns can be found throughout my artwork. They are often my fallback when I am experimenting with a new medium. Their grace and beauty lend themselves to delicious delightful round swooshing sensual lines.

The piece here was a quick little experiment with goache and ink on watercolour paper. Sapphire ink from France had been inviting me to come play. (Tu me veux ma petit.) At $16.99 a bottle, this was not a cheap date ink. It was special and I had to think long and hard before I committed to it. But I am so happy that I did. I combined it with standard black ink and I achieved this lovely expression of joy.
