Part of the Winter Solstice Collection, Christmas Cones is an extension of my seed head range where I so enjoy the observational drawing of nature especially when the snow accentuates the characteristics of the plant.
Claire is renowned for her seed head paintings from the British countryside in exhibitions and galleries.
These are executed in her unique mixed media style of working in ink, wax and water colour.
A characteristic of this technique is the subtle bluish and yellowish golden hues emanating from the release of the Quink ink in her illustrations.
The texture of the coloured wax erupting from the water colour and ink contrasts perfectly with the white background of the pure water colour paper.
This is a very popular subject for Claire’s workshops and talks.
Art Societies are regularly requesting her workshops on this subject that is very close to her heart.
She travels around the country with a box full of seed heads carefully grown in her garden and a specific selection of her materials and tools for the student to use.
She likes to provide all this so that the student is able to achieve their goals of emulating her unique style of painting.
