This Honey Suckle grows wild in the hedgerows and is painted here in watercolour by Lucy Erridge. One of the many wild flowers which Lucy plants and grows to provide inspiration in colour, textures and shape for her knitted pieces. 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.
