Love in a Mist Seedhead
“I grow Love in a Mist(Nigella) in my garden every year, often they self-seed and I love where they appear unexpected as well as treating myself to new varieties. I gather the seed heads to dry ready for painting. The card shown here is in a subtle range of grey as the beautiful green feathery foliage has dried out.”
Claire is renowned for her original seed head paintings 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 bluish and yellowish gold 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 can achieve their goals of emulating her unique style of painting.
