Designer tea towels - the creative process

The paintings of twelve different types of tropical fruit started as sketches of the local fruit and of the trees on which they grow.

The pineapple, for instance, grew in my garden from the top of one which I had eaten, taking about two years to reach maturity. I was particularly interested in the repetition of the shapes and rough texture of the skin and the leaves as well as  the golden and green colours of each.

Coffee grows in my garden too, its short-lived perfumed white flowers soon giving way to green coffee fruit, which turns a bright red when ripe, then dark brown as the seed (bean), with which coffee lovers are familiar, ripens.

Sketches were enlarged onto good quality watercolour paper then painted in a free manner using transparent acrylic paint, building up layers of colour to give a depth and richness to the whole. Details were added with watercolour pencils.

Kitchen tea towels for you - or as a special gift - your choice.
