Snowdrops

Snowdrops

Original and Limited Edition Giclée Print of Watercolour Painting

I love painting snowdrops, and this is the result of a trip out into the garden one day in early 2019! More photos of the actual bunch are in the photos related to this painting and print in the shop section.

Winter Bouquet

Winter Bouquet

Original and Limited Edition Giclée Print of Watercolour Painting

This original watercolour painting "Winter Bouquet" (and Limited Edition Giclée Print) was inspired by some of the branches and leaves I picked on a walk around the farm last December. I remember being in the mood to paint a bouquet and this is what evolved!

Parisian Leaves

Parisian Leaves

Original and Giclée Print of Watercolour Painting

We were lucky enough to spend a few days in Paris in December (2018) and stayed opposite the Sorbonne in the Left Bank. I was surprised that so many of the local galleries had floral / green / nature themes in their exhibitions, and I think this is a result of that influence, somehow mixed in with the River Seine!

Autumn Spray

Autumn is a beautiful time of year here in the Highlands, and this is my original painting “Autumn Spray”. I painted it after a walk around the farm in late 2018, gathering a selection of leaves - all at different stages on the exact same day.

Summer Bouquet

Summer Bouquet

Original and Giclée Print of Original Watercolour

We are surrounded by wild flowers here in my garden and in the Scottish Highlands generally. One of my greatest pleasures is going out for a walk and picking up a big (or tiny!) bouquet and working out how I will paint it as I turn homewards.

Last summer this beautiful cluster of exotic poppies sprung up at the side of the track leading to the farmyard, and we have no idea where the seeds blew in from!

Wildflower Path

Wildflower Path

Original and Limited Edition Giclée Print of Watercolour Painting

We are lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the Highlands of Scotland, and in summer the countryside comes alive with wild flowers. This painting "Wildflower Path" was my interpretation of a path we walked down one sunny day.

Summer Birch Trees

Summer Birch Trees

Original and Limited Edition Giclée Print of Watercolour Painting

Even though we don't get too many hot sunny days here in the Highlands of Scotland, when they come along all the nature that surrounds us seems to revel in it - like us! These birch trees are just down the track from our house and were particularly beautiful on the day I painted them.

"Summer Birch Trees" is painted on Daler Rowney 140lb Rough Watercolour paper.

Birch Trees in the Snow

Living in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland we're quite spoilt for Winter walks! These birch trees are just down the track from our house and I think they look at their best in the snow.

Sunflowers

Sunflowers

Original and Limited Edition Giclée Print of Watercolour Painting

I don't think sunflowers grow as tall here in the Highlands of Scotland as they do in other parts of the world but they brighten up our summers at any height! My neighbour Granny Beth has a magnificent garden and she kindly let me paint these last summer.

This "Sunflowers" was painted on an A3 sheet of Handmade Khadi 320gsm Cotton Rag paper.

Wildflower Posy

My painting "Wildflower Posy" came about after walking my daughter down to the school bus-stop at the farm. These flowers were picked on the way back up to the house and painted that day!
