Sunflowers are so easy to grow and so rewarding! They feed the bees, then they feed the birds and some even come indoors to be a feast for the eyes as well.
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.
