I like to paint my flower studies from life in a garden or park, often sitting on the ground, so I'm at eye level with the plants. This is not botanical art, but more of a loose, impressionist style. I think of them as 'plant portraits'. I mostly use small, square panels to paint on, applying plentiful oil paint with palette knives, resulting in a thick and textured surface or impasto.
Some of the larger pieces are painted indoors based on my oil sketches. All the paintings are framed with a coloured inner border and a champagne gold or an off-white frame; you can see examples below. If you'd prefer a different framing just let me know.
