Here is a more #decorative piece of #botanicalart, done recently. It's a #floralgarland of #strawberry #fruit. The colours were specified by the client. Rather different from what I normally do, but I rather enjoyed doing a more conventionally #pretty #flowerpainting for once!

Today #ForagingwithKids by Adele Nozedar (my #botanicalillustrations) hits independent booksellers, ahead of its more general release on Sept 20th (Amazon etc). Here's an article in The Bookseller: https://www.thebookseller.com/news/watkins-launches-special-campaign-indie-bookshops-829136.
The books is from Nourish books: https://nourishbooks.com/shop/foraging-with-kids/ , and you can pre-order from the usual bigger companies..(but I think you should get a copy from your local bookshop instead!) http://ow.ly/i/HdS1o http://ow.ly/i/HdS2d http://ow.ly/i/HdS37

This #watercolour of a #barn #owl clasping a #bouquet of #flowers is an #illustration completed for a private client; & is rather a diversion from my normal #botanicalillustration and #sciart. I don't mind dabbling in the more #decorative side of #animalart every once in a while
