My first still life painting. Very much a midwinter composition.
With the edition of Michaelmas Daisies in the foreground you can see how the composition links together. Only fine details remain to be added. I often spend days on this fine-tuning.
The complex layering of the background makes a huge difference to the final sense of richness and depth in a collage. Here I am working with grasses and Michaelmas daisies.
A cheering site for a gloomy December day and just what I need for my new collage. This plant has shifted its name several times through my lifetime and has currently settled on Hesperantha coccinea. Let us hope, by writing it here I can keep it in my head.
The blue Lace-cap Hydrangeas have joined the Trelissick collage.
The background landscape for the collage of hydrangeas in Trelissick Garden. I have dyed the fabric in the foreground for the Beech trees.
Hydrangea aspera flowers ready for my new textile collage.
Rudbeckia and Birch trees, only needing the golden birch leaves to link the composition together.
