Sweet Williams are one of my best-est, most favourite, happiest, rewarding plants to grow, buy or paint.
Apparently they are named after either the 18th century Prince William or William Shakespeare
I love painting them – I love the colours, the zig-zag petal edges, the way the colours bleed and the patterning.
I often make myself little notes of encouragement to pin-up around the studio.
This one is to keep me persevering! If you want to download a copy for yourself there is a pdf here if you click the link: Claire_Leggett_Persevere Pinks.jpg you can print it off and share the encouragement 🙂
