‘the air is full of insects and pollen’
‘the air is full of insects and pollen’ is one of 7 paintings from my ‘florescence’ collection. Inspired by the fantastic gardens at Constable Burton Hall, this piece has come together from sketching and painting en plein air in the gardens and later developed in my little garden studio. This flowery piece is bursting with summer colour, blousy florals and warm vibes which spills over on to the edges of the canvas too. The air has such a special quality in summer- it feels more visible somehow? Warm breezes carrying pollen and insects flow between the trees and flowers- magic!
