Well I’m really stretching my artistic license painting spring flowers while there is snow on the ground!

It’s quite an antidote to the weather – I’d recommend it.

These flowers are so much fun to paint – all the bright colours, the sloshy watery paint bleeding colour into a nice heavy watercolour paper – yum!

I can feel a nice bright design coming along soon.

And once I completed that first painting, I still couldn’t stop and had to make a little line of flowers which would be nodding at me from the garden if all my plants weren’t decimated.

Hope you are surviving the snow where ever you are and that these remind you of what’s to come – eventually!

I have been working away in my own little greenhouse recently.

I spotted these Primula’s at a good price in an independent garden centre and had already seen an image online which had sparked the idea for plants in teacups.

It is such a joy to paint these bright, cheery spring flowers, not only are they relatively easy to paint but being surrounded by them all day is a lift to the spirits.

There was the difficult choice of which cup for which flower – I looked like a deranged gardener having an Alice in Wonderland-esque tea party!

cups

I had to employ a unique ‘cup on cup on CD tower’ type arrangement to get the right view on it in order to paint it straight on. There were a few mis-haps but luckily Wedgwood bounces – ouch!

Here’s a little pic of my painting nest – note hot water bottle (saves having the heating on) and cup of tea dangerously close to water jug (wrong brush, in wrong liquid).

The finished piece is big (A1) cheery, bright and makes me smile. I hope you enjoy it too.
