‘Nigella Seed Pod’ by Jane Hildreth



Water colours, limited palate and water on paper. 18 x 26cms. Worked produced on Monday evening Still Life drawing class with Susannah and Anne

An experimental evening amongst the clam of the wellbeing Monday evening class. After a session of relaxing yoga with Vanessa, which I love, I enjoyed playing with a new palate of ‘Graphitint’ Derwent watercolours. My exquisite Nigella seed head from the garden allowed me to paint the intricate fine hair quality of the leaves directly onto the paper. I hope to take this drawing forward as a ceramic transfer in the future and others similar to this. I’ve learnt to be more relaxed about my work through these sessions. Drawn on 1/2/2021
