SUNDAY FLOWERS SERIES

In 2019 I made a year-long project called Sunday Flowers/Söndagsblommor. Every Sunday I arranged a fresh flower in a glass on my table, studied it intensely for a while and then quickly sketched it down with a thin Chinese brush, dipped in a dark watercolour mix of indanthrene blue and sepia. After drying I added some little colour. The paper was handmade in India from recycled cotton rag, hard like cardboard, with a  very rough surface. It couldn’t handle water like normal watercolour paper and did not take any erasing. So any drawing with pencil was out of the question.

During winter Sundays I selected my ‘victim’ in flower shops, but from early spring til late autumn, I chose wild or garden flowers.

No cheating – on some Sundays I was not at home, so I then took a cut sheet, paints and brush with me.

So – I ended up with 52 square sketches, here presented to you. They have been exhibited summer -22 in my own small show, close to home in Borensberg, Sweden and also in Galleri Akvarellen outside Oslo in Norway in September, where I was invited to be part of the 10 year celebration of the gallery and am very grateful for that! Some flowers are sold, but if you are interested in one or several of them, please contact me. Size is 25×25 cm (10×10″) and they look beautiful, mounted in some colored mat and framed. Price is only 50€ each.
