Original Botanical Watercolour Painting of a Dandelion Seed Head

Dandelions are easily recognised countryside flowers.  A rather stubborn weed which multiplies rapidly they are certainly not popular with gardeners in their lawns and borders.  However they are a really important food source for bees, butterflies, beetles and insects.  Particularly early in the season before other flowers are blooming.  A dandelion flower goes through a number of changes in its lifetime.  This painting depicts the seed head just before it opens to reveal the dandelion clock much loved by children.  Indeed the clock is designed to be blown by the wind, it is a really effective seed dispersal mechanism.  Who knew the seed head was so pretty though, I hope you like it.

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me!

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
