Some Floral Inspiration

I am currently looking into floral motifs and designs for my wallpaper and interiors collection that will be showcased at my degree show this may. I began by drawing and painting some designs and flowers in watercolour. I have been inspired by the work of Scottish painter and printmaker Dame Elizabeth Blackadder.  Elizabeths florals are fresh in colour and maintain a delicate and whimsical feel. Her drawings are detailed and convey beautiful combinations and arrangements of florals. Here are some of my favourite prints,
