Just for interest this shows the detail in the stem more clearly.

Rosehips finished today and going to be framed to submit to the SBA exhibition in April 2016. Lots of detail in the stem which I loved painting.

Last week I exhibited at the very successful North Downs Botanical Artists exhibition of which I am a member. The venue was at the Old Chapel at St Johns School in Leatherhead and it was a beautiful venue. We had lots of visitors who were very complimentary about the paintings and the venue.
I sold the paintings and the graphite study of the teasel shown below which I was delighted about.

An image of a Bhutan pine cone drawn in graphite. The Bhutan Pine is native to the Himalayas. It was introduced to Europe in the 1830s and is found in parks and large gardens. I picked this cone up on a walk in France several years ago. It was a challenge to draw but I am pleased with the result. A candidate for next year's SBA exhibition.

I am working on several studies at present and I was working on this clematis today, adding in a seedhead with some fading petals to complete the composition. The seedhead will be a challenge to paint! The clematis is called Lincoln Star.
