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

Pinks in Cup_claire_leggett

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 🙂

Back before the summer got busy and I forgot to show you, I painted this little cup of Sweet Williams.

Sweet Williams remind me of my childhood because my dad grew them on his allotment and it was one particular flower he didn’t mind cutting and bringing home to mum.

I l♡ved painting these flowers as there was lots of opportunity to let wet paint bleed into the next colour to help get that distinctive shape on the petals.

And the Liberty fabric is also a favourite to paint because it’s so jaunty and fresh. Happy memories all round 🙂
