Triumph Tulip, Tulipa ‘Jackpot’


When they first appear the flower buds are green. The rich colour develops gradually as the bud grows and opens - something I wanted to record in my painting.

Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus)


The leaves of this botanical curiosity are really flattened stems, which is why the flowers and berries appear to be growing from the middle of the ‘leaves’.

Tulipa greigii ‘Mary Ann’


The lax habit of this Tulip meant that during the course of a day the stems and angles of the buds moved. Each day the flowers also open and close, making it an interesting challenge to draw.

Oak Apple (Biorrhiza pallida on Quercus rober)


When the gall wasp, Biorrhiza pallida, lays its eggs in a bud on an Oak tree, an Oak Apple is formed as the eggs hatch and the larvae grow. Eventually they pupate and turn into adults, which tunnel their way out of the gall and fly away.

Autumn Rose Bud


The late season flowers of this rose have a freshness and beauty often lackin in the mid summer flowers, which is why I wanted to paint this bud.
