Creative Colour Mixing at Nature in Art

4th August 2016

I really enjoyed a great week as Artist in Residence at Nature in Art followed by a lively two-days teaching a Creative Colour Mixing Workshop.

These are the pictures I worked on during this week.


This is my first trial of Strathmore Bristol Vellum 300 series and I really enjoyed working in this paper. Not so happy about the slightly grey tinge to the paper or the fact that the colour seemed to drain a bit but I will now persevere with something more vibrant. We really need a trustworthy and enjoyable paper to replace Fabriano hopefully only in the short term.


These ‘Larger than Life’ Parrots are finally near completion, just a tidy up and then off to be scanned.


I managed quite a bit more leaf work on this “larger than Life’ Artichoke but it is very painstaking.


Finally, I got started on my next really large piece, ‘Larger than Life’ Day lilies. I can’t wait to continue with this but have to finish those pesky leaves first!!

Not to bad for a week’s work, thanks to Nature in Art for having me!

  • Brilliant Ann! Particularly like the Day Lilly.

  • Beautiful Ann – I can see you in the reflections of the cherries! Best wishes from Cape Town, Wendy Burchell

  • A very productive week. Love how the artichoke from France has progressed

  • This is a sample..
