About the series: Flower Study


These drawings were part of a preliminary stage of planning for a large abstract mural titled “Spring in the Air”.  Throughout my arts practice, I have learnt that my daily sketching habits effect the personality of my abstract forms. I used this finding to influence the “floating” shapes by spending time sketching flowers from life during the lead up to the The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and from botanical images in books.


Field sketches like this helps to inform the compositions of my future paintings by giving me an opportunity to draw shapes that are new to me. After a short series is complete, they are made available for sale and each is sold separately. 


The ink used is not waterproof and some smudges may be present. The front of the drawing is signed by the artist.
