This is A Watercolour of Clematis by Lucy Erridge is of one of the Clematis growing on the small birch tree growing beside our thatched cottage. It is a most unusual flower and continues flowering through the summer, because of this it adds colour to our garden through the summer. The flower is almost like a crysanthemum with layers of petals and has beautiful seed heads too.
This painting is A Watercolour of Clematis by Lucy Erridge. Watercolour allows Lucy to achieve delicate drawings and above all build depth and detail into the painting.
Lucy is a knitwear designer and owner of our shop. She plants and tends our cottage garden. The flowers in our garden are a constant source of inspiration for Lucy’s knitwear designs. Part of the process of translating the flowers into inspiration is drawing the flowers. Sometimes she draws each flower individually for form and texture. Another time she draws the combinations of flowers and leaves for layout and composition.
It is mounted, ready for framing, in a double mount with a dark green inner border.
