Additional Information

Subtle Beauty is an original watercolour painting of roses. Roses are a challenge to portray, especially in watercolour. There is something so captivating about roses, that they must be painted! I can see why Monet had his garden at Giverny and painted the flowers that grew there.  “I must have flowers, always, and always.” (Claude Monet) I have some photos that my sister in law took at Giverny, so I’d love to paint something from those.

This my fifth painting featuring roses. I have definite plans to paint more, as well as other flowers including daisies and sunflowers. It’s an interesting turn of events as I was never keen on flowers when I was younger. My mother was an avid gardener and I remember there being plants everywhere outside and some pot plants inside. There were some roses growing up over an arch leading to the front steps. I walked under it daily, but didn’t appreciate how beautiful it was at the time. Mum used to pick flowers and actually arrange them so they would look beautiul. Sadly, I have no finesse at flower arranging and tend to just plonk them in a vase. Even, when I studied plant and wildlife illustration, I mostly focused on illustrating animals. It’s only been over the last decade that I have really started  to appreciate what a wonderful creation flowers are.

This delicately painted artwork speaks of beauty, of romance, of femininity. Subtle Beauty would look stunning in a bedroom, lounge room or study. Subtle Beauty is painted on acid free Saunders Waterford watercolour paper (hot press 640 gsm) using artist quality Winsor and Newton watercolour paints. The artwork is sold unframed. It will need to be framed under glass.  Like all artworks should be hung out of direct light and away from excess humidity. Subtle Beauty measures 29 cm x 29 cm. On exhibition until end of November 2020.
