Four of my new photographs will be part of a show featuring 19 UK artists with 75 artworks on display including photography, painting, ceramics and textiles. Included is this plant study used on the poster, Tulipa 4. Gas Gallery will also have some of my new work in theirs spring show starting on 19 March.

RHS Botanical Art Show. February 2017.

RHS Botanical Art Show. February 2017.

On Saturday 25th February I went to the RHS Botanical Art Show at Lindley Hall, Vincent Square, London. There were numerous outstanding entries to the competition but I particularly enjoyed the work of four artists. Sarah Jane Humphrey’s lavender studies were exquisitely detailed and I was fascinated by the labyrinthine roots of  Hideko Kamoshita’s illustrations of Cirsium plants. The image here shows the unconventional compositional style of Bridget Gillespie’s studies of root vegetables, one of which received the best botanical painting award. The best botanical art exhibit award was given to Mariko Ikeda for her set of outstanding watercolour on vellum images of Pandanus (screw pine).
