Summer Wastelands. Wild carrot and grasses. 38cmx38cm- image size. The wild carrot this year has retained an almost fossilised form due to the extreme heat. Also very springy. Unframed original watercolour painting. Painted on Saunders watercolour paper, Not surface. This paper is not white and not cream. Resembles calico cotton, loomstate unbleached cotton. Both the surface texture and the natural colour of the paper adds a different quality to the artwork itself. The colour tones of the paint and the movement of the paint over the surface is affected by the type of paper you choose to paint on.

Paper making season had a rather a late start.... hindered by the “beast from the east”.
However, the continuous heatwave meant that production managed to catch up. For the first time ever I was able to leave papers out all night drying. No rain no dampness in the air. Only thing I had to watch out for was slugs and snails who fancied an evening snack. To overcome this at dusk I had to transfer them to the boughs of the trees.
Dry in the morning and only a couple of nibbled sheets.
A small selection here. Including daffodil stalks, banana skins, tea and bamboo leaves.

Hibiscus.
I brought this plant when it was about 9” high, for pennies. For years it grew but never flowered. It was only in a pot. A small pot, a medium pot and now a large pot. About 6 years ago it finally flowered and to my amazement it was white and not purple. Quite small blooms but blooms nevertheless. Two out of the following years it formed buds but they dried and fell off due to severe harsh winds and rain. But this year huge leaves abundance of buds and flowers. Even in the late evening they glow. Worth the wait. The pennies spent have turned to gold.
