Hogweed and Grasses Original watercolour painting. 38cmx38cm.
This year continues to be full of surprises. Hard to know at times exactly what season we are in. For those of you who saw the wildflower meadow in stories this came as a surprise because most of the summer this area was bare earth. Not a flower insight! The hedgerows are a mixture of skeletal forms and new growth. The grasses are enormous in parts. Some hogweed and cow parsley are flowering again too. While leaves on trees were there one minute, and after one storm nearly stripped bare. The last few days the evening sky has been incredible.....totally ablaze with colour!
Original watercolour. Image size 38cmx38cm. Framed size 50cmx50cm. Meadow. Dock and Wild Carrot(Queen Anne’s Lace). Dock stems are particularly spectacular this year. The colour range from one area to another is quite dramatic. Deep pinkish brown, rusts and burgundy’s through to almost charcoal browns. Comes under the category of weed.... but has many usages and a fabulous host plant for insects. Great structures to paint.
