This Watercolour of Dead Nettle shows one of our native wild flowers. This wild flower is named dead nettle and because of the name you know it doesn’t sting! Watercolour allows Lucy to achieve delicate drawings and build depth and detail into the painting.Our garden at our thatched cottage shop in Adare has a wide array of flowers, including wild flowers, which Lucy plants and grows to provide inspiration in colour and shape to her knitted designs. Painting them allows her to study the forms and colour combinations.
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.
Double mounted with green inner border, these paintings are ready for framing.
