THE SUBJECTS LESS PAINTED
Flowering plants are beautiful and we love to paint them, but there are so many other subjects that are equally beautiful and interesting to paint. Mosses and lichens, for example, can be part of a plant portrait or subjects in their own right. Christina will explain why and how she paints these so-called ‘lower plants’ — and other ‘treasures’ too. They may not seem obvious subjects to paint, but are all part of the whole story. You will see how some paintings develop, with hints, tips and stories along the way.
BIO Christina has been a professional artist and illustrator for a very long time. It has been a varied career: she was the first Honorary Secretary of the Society of Botanical Artists; worked for four years on The Collins Flower Guide; holds six RHS Gold Medals, many of them for her paintings of mosses or lichens; has written and illustrated several books. As an illustrator, Christina paints whatever is required, but her passion is for the unusual, less obvious subjects. She is fascinated by all aspects of the natural world and how they interconnect.
