I'm being quite ambitious with this idea - Falklands Conservation are asking for paintings to celebrate the endemic flower species of the Islands (there are 13 of them) for an exhibition in June. I've got really fascinated by the whole concept, although flower painting has never been my thing. The endemic flowers are small, and I have for a long time been interested in the idea of painting a big picture of a very small thing. So I have picked out 6 species, and the paintings are in two groups of three each of which will be arranged in a metre square - three are in warm colours - the flowers are yellow/gold/orange/touch of red, and the other three are in cool whites/silver greys/grey-green.
These pictures are work in progress:-
