Botanic Studies

Some of my work devoted to gardens, Botanic hothouses, greenhouses, plants, and all things green

White Glass Green House

An acrylic painting on canvas board,measures approx 24 cms x 31 cms, unframed, signed on reverse.

I am particularly drawn to botanical subject matter and in this piece I was interested in the unique quality of light within a Botanic hothouse. 

Please refer to my instagram for more insight into the inspiration to this and other pieces.

Green Gold Glass House

This piece, originally a sketch based on a reference photo of a palm house, is one of several pieces I created, in various media and formats, of a subject I find endlessly rich and intriguing.

A Transparent House

A Transparent House is a sketch where I was playing with negative space and as always exploring the light-filled arena that is a house made of glass.

Orange Afternoon

This mixed media sketch was an attempt to explore a fairly minimalist representational approach, and let the white of the page do much of the work of conveying a sense of a light-filled zone.
