This Watercolour of Pheasant Bane shows one of our the flowers from a bush in our garden. This flower is small and hang downwards, because of this it provides inspiration for placing decorative knitwear designs. In this Watercolour of Pheasant Bane it shows the variety of shapes in the leaves and flowers. Watercolour allows Lucy to achieve delicate drawings and so build depth and detail into the painting. Our garden at our thatched cottage shop in Adare has a wide array of flowers which Lucy plants and grows to provide inspiration in colour and shape to her knitted designs.
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. Firstly she draws each flower individually for form and texture. Secondly time she draws the combinations of flowers and leaves for layout and composition. In conclusion, this drawing process is an important part of the design process.
Double mounted with green inner border, these paintings are ready for framing.
