Poppy Seed Head
"Poppies aren’t they fabulous! I love them in my garden.
Every year they come up in a different range of colours single and double I never know what I am going to get, its so inspiring for my garden paintings in water colour.
I gather the seed heads of these every year for my students and I to draw from.
I really like the bluish green colour of the freshly picked seed head and then as they dry they become a wonderful warm pale golden hue."
Claire is renowned for her seed head paintings in exhibitions and galleries.
These are executed in her unique art 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.
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 own original art image based on these floral subjects.
