In this bright and lively painting, the delicacy of bubbles are juxtaposed with the sharp intent of hummingbird beaks. The hollyhocks add a splash of contrasting colour to the brilliant green.
Each original watercolour painting begins with a detailed pencil drawing. The drawing process involves real-life objects from our farm, the use of my own photo references of our resident wildlife, and many pattern and colour studies. The wallpaper patterns seen in many of my pieces are created from scratch… from doodle to design! As for the watercolour itself, all of the pieces are painted on a hot-pressed block using fine brushes, watercolour paint and pencils and, as yet, no magnifying glass.
