Clematis Vase

This pretty drawing inspired by a mauve clematis in my garden this Summer is on A3 size high quality paper in acrylic ink and paint.

I drafted this painting sat amongst the plants in my garden during the hot sunny days of this years heatwave. The area of the garden where the clematis grows has deep shade in the hottest part of the day and so it allowed me to spend time thinking about how the develop the idea. The clematis share the vase with other flowers creating a unique design.There is a lot of detail in the drawing which adds to the beauty of the overall piece.

Some of my designs feature on greeting cards which are available via
