Nasturtiums

Nasturtiums, acrylic on watercolour paper

I’ve been doing some garden portraits in preparation for a book project. The foliage used in these for the leaf printing is all from my own little garden. I’ve been experimenting with some new leaves, the result is a mixture of New Zealand natives and exotics. I really like how the nasturtiums turned out and how the pictures remind me of childhood explorations of suburban gardens.
