Quite Literally Painting Flowers

Quite Literally Painting Flowers by Georgie St ClairSharing with you today are some painting experiments I’ve been making. After my workshop with Carne Griffiths, my love of splashing paint about has been reignited. Drawing is a very concentrated activity for me so freeing myself up and quite literally painting flowers, real flowers, is a lot of fun. Plus I love the results. Painterly dynamic loveliness.

I’m planning and plotting ways of bringing all of these techniques together now. The painterly splashes alongside the more considered drawings. I’ll also be sharing my painted watercolour exploits soon.

Anyway, as always I’d love to hear your thoughts. Or even better share your painterly experiments with me on my favourite visual social network, Instagram.

    I love these, they are so dramatic. There is something about the fact that they will fade and disappear too I think. You could definitely make prints of these photographs.

      Wow thanks Michelle – coming from an awesome photographer, that means A LOT too! Funnily enough, I’ve just made them print ready as my lovely hubby thinks I should try making them into prints too. Watch this space 😉

      It’s very therapeutic because they generally get thrown away afterwards – it’s really nice to not feel precious about these creations. Although I’m not working on ways to preserve them a little longer. I’ll let you know how I get on xx
