Inspired by Nature - Wild Flowers & Field Verges

inspiration, natureCharlotte Brown

We had the hottest July day on record here in the UK yesterday - and it definitely felt a scorcher, with the day ending in flashes of lightning across the sky as the heat just built and built...

I hate the heat, but love the sunshine - and I've been just loving the saturated bright colours, and play of light across the fields.

I tend to take the dog out early morning and early evening to avoid the worst of the heat, the sun is slightly lower in the sky, and the colours out in the fields are popping, warm and sultry...

I've been feeling very inspired by the wild flowers I've been admiring in the field verges, and meadows, while out on my walks... so many this year ...and I've been busy working on some pieces which incorporate the feel...

...and I've also been getting a little bit experimental with colour - and loving it!

I am currently working on some live briefs for companies, as part of my surface pattern design course, so don't have any new designs to share with you right at the moment, but I did just want to let you see all the beautiful field flowers that have been inspiring me...

I have also been enjoying drawing these stunning little lewisia flowers in my garden - tiny, but so sweet and pretty...

I hope you're enjoying the sunshine too - do take care and be safe in the extreme heat though.
