I am thrilled to announce that my first botanical contribution to this wonderful collection was accepted this year
& will be part of the exhibition & will also appear in the publication. So I am a very happy artist indeed!
My piece Keterleeria fortunei is a conifer native to Hong Kong & certain provinces of China. It has the most
gorgeous pastel green immature cones and wonderfully large woody mature cones (this was my favourite part to paint and what attracted me to choose to this plant). I also found the seeds very beautiful to paint as well.
A detail of it appears proudly in the article above and the full painting is below.
