Experiencing the natural world through art
Sunflowers wiith Jersey Tiger moth, apple and raku bowl. Carolyn Lamb 11 Aug 2020. Watercolour. Taking inspiration from the Sound of Music song, this week we had to think of a few of our favourite things. I started with the Jersey tiger moth caught on our window, because I like to paint from nature. Then cheery sunflowers as I Iike flowers and yellow is my favourite colour. I like fruit and there was a windfall apple. And my favourite bowl which has a great sculptural presence. It cost 40p in a Sheffield 'collectables' fair in 1985.
Ferme D' Orme. C . Lamb . Oil. 10x12". I was planning to finish a painting of Lakka Bay on Paxos that I did in 2018 for this challenge but it was not ready so instead I cheated with an oil from earlier this year. I translated the name into French so it would seem as if abroad in France but it is in fact Bertie at Elm Tree Farm, Portishead.
