British Flowers Week

13th June 2016

Welcome to British Flowers Week! Something we in the studio love is nature. Having just had the hedgerows packed full of bluebells vying for attention, now our British countryside is brimming with wild flowers of all colours and designs. From meticulous kept village gardens, urban window boxes to a florist’s spray – we love it all. So when we heard it was British Flowers Week the 13th to the 19th June 2016, it seemed an ideal subject for us to illustrate – and you know us, any excuse to get drawing!

Tuesday and we started with the Foxglove. The bright pink towers are a beacon for bees and we love them.

Wednesday and it had to be the English Rose. They smell marvellous and these soft delicate blooms have inspired many a poet.

Thursday brings the beautiful Bluebell. Intense cobalt blues are found in shady woodland. Happily found all over our fair nation, the Scots have their own version. More delicate and bell-like but just as beautiful!

Its Friday! We conclude our little trip around the British garden with the Welsh Poppy. Delicate an sunshine yellow, tinged with orange, this flower brings a smile to your face.
