These botanics can be seen at the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead until 20th November. Both are for sale at £180. I went to the opening last week and there are some excellent paintings on display. Well worth a visit.

The above paintings are two of four that have been selected to be shown at the Williamson Art Gallery.

While I was visiting Ness Gardens, I came across this beautiful Iris. I was particularly drawn to the strong contrast of light and shadow. I felt it would make an interesting painting. I painted this in watercolour.

Autumn Leaves
I was at a local garden centre admiring the plants. It had just stopped raining and the sun came out. I had my camera with me so could not resist taking photographs. I painted this picture in watercolour and gouache.
