Wild flowers gathered from the end of my garden made a soft and less structured still life to paint in watercolour. George arranged his in a striking rich blue vase. You can see the use of sea salt crystals to soften and texture his background wash.
Three very different approaches using wet on wet watercolour and very dense paint mixes to create rich colours, particularly the acid yellows.
Experimenting with the colours before starting to paint proved very helpful, particularly matching the greens.
