This Watercolour Painting of Roses shows the roses that grow on our gable wall at our shop in Adare. We planted the roses 15 years ago, the rose bushes are a rich velvety red colour. Because we painted red of the window frames red they echo the colour of the roses. This is a Watercolour of Purple Poppies by Lucy Erridge. Watercolour allows Lucy to achieve delicate drawings and 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.
