Hollyhocks Art - Behind the Scenes

Bold and colourful floral art - 'Hollyhocks' art print - bringing you colour and joy as part of my 'Joyful Blooming' theme...

'Hollyhocks' art print - vibrant floral art by Lotti Brown

'Hollyhocks' art print - vibrant floral art by Lotti Brown

With this artwork, I wanted to create the lift of happiness you feel when you see vibrant, beautiful flowers in the sunshine, against a brilliant blue sky...

The artwork was inspired by a couple of photos I took of beautiful pink hollyhocks in a garden - I loved these so much that I'd had one of the photos as a screen-saver on my phone for years...

Final Hollyhocks artwork - colourful and joyful nature!

I love the really bright, vibrant colours in this artwork - and the joyful, carefree attitude of the flowers - open, blooming confidently, proud and jostling for space with each other, ready to show off their beauty.

That's something I'm trying to explore for myself with this series of Joyful Blooming artwork - being proud and confident to step forward as myself and show myself boldly...

But also because they're flowers, and they're beautiful, and to see them opens my heart and makes my soul sing...

So maybe you can relate to that too?

Mystical Magpie and Maple - Behind the Scenes of the Artwork

artworks, behind the scenes, color, drawings, inspiration, nature art, bird art, wildlife artCharlotte Brown

Beautiful magpie artwork in pinks, golden-yellows, teals, blues and purples... 

Mystical Magpie and Maple artwork by Lotti Brown

I created this magpie artwork to celebrate this special bird that has a bit of a reputation...

One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret never to be told....

Yes - the magpie comes with a reputation... and a rhyme that all schoolchildren knew off by heart in my day...

We used to salute or doff our cap to a single magpie to ward off bad luck...

And if with a companion call out, "Look! A magpie!" Then mutter quickly, "Seen by two, never comes true..."

Perhaps it's just the magpie's reputation for stealing your shiny belongings, which it hides in its nest...?

But more than one magpie was always a thrill to see and seemed to herald good fortune of some kind...

And in many parts of the world - including in China, Korea, Native America, and many parts of Europe - the magpie is a symbol of happiness and good fortune and any sight of a magpie is warmly welcomed...

So it's certain that the magpie does have that special, mystical air that causes so many populations to set him apart from other birds - and the magpie itself is a very intelligent bird - clever, resourceful and a fantastic mimic... no wonder people have always seen the magpie as something very special.

And you can barely see a more striking bird in our British landscape and gardens... large and with a very distinctive stripe - there's no missing such a handsome and dramatic-looking bird.

Detail from the artwork

So my artwork is to celebrate this special bird, it's dramatic look and its mystical reputation, but particularly to see beyond that, too - to see this very intelligent and resourceful bird, that can even recognise and understand its reflection in a mirror - (the only bird and one of very few creatures that can do so). A bird that makes a monogamous bond for life with their partner and can mourn their dead...

No wonder the magpie is recognised across the world as special...!

Behind the Scenes

The completed 'Mystical Magpie and Maple' artwork

I really love the colours in my magpie artwork - the familiar, striking plumage against the rather unexpected soft pinks and ochre yellows that I hope will inspire you to look beyond the reputations and superstitions of the magpie, and look with respect at the capabilities and nature of this truly remarkable bird itself, instead...

My magpie art prints are available now in my online store...

Autumn Flowers Artwork - Behind the Scenes

artworks, behind the scenes, color, drawings, inspiration, new collections, shopping, nature artCharlotte BrownComment

I'm taking a behind-the-scenes look at my Autumn Flowers - You Can Get By (With a Little Help From Your Friends) artwork...

Autumn Flowers, by Lotti Brown

The story behind the artwork is in the title - You Can Get By with a Little Help From Your Friends. It's all about how nature can get by more easily with a bit of a helping hand from us, her friend, especially in planting flowers to help nature in our gardens.

The flowers I chose to include in my Autumn Flowers artwork are all significant, as well as beautiful. They are all flowers which are particularly attractive to bees. And we so need to look after our bees and pollinators to help the natural world go round.

Pollinating flowers and plants allows them to fruit and set seed, and return again in the future. It helps provide other animals, birds, insects, and even us humans, with fruit and food to eat.

Bees perform a vital role in nature, and are under threat. Anything we can do to help them out is surely a good thing. And when you can have flowers as lovely as this in your garden, well, why wouldn't you?

Autumn is a great time to add more flowers into your garden. It helps extend the pollen season for bees and other insects, when there are fewer flowers about, generally. And also helps to brighten your garden up through the fading months.

Bees love:

Nasturtiums

Nasturtiums - the leaves are also very tasty for caterpillars (which gives us more butterflies)

Black-eyed Susan

Rudbeckia (Black-eyed Susan)

Mint

Mint flowers seem almost irresistible to bees

Ling heather

I've often seen bees buzzing around heather flowers.

I draw out each of the flowers individually, and, once the drawings are all scanned in, I use the computer to put them all together into my autumn flower garden...

I work on positioning and composition first...

Work in progress, using the computer to create an artwork from individual drawings

As you can see, at first the colours appear quite washed out, as scanned in...

So once I'm happy with the composition, I turn my attention to tweaking and brightening the colours...

Work in progress - brighter colours look better

Sometimes I will decide the piece can become more interesting if I change about some of the colours...

Artwork on screen in Adobe Illustrator programme

I might also decide to add a more dramatic colour palette to work with, and choose a striking background colour to set the flowers off, so they stand out really well...

Detail from Autumn Flowers artwork

I love that this piece is full of those gorgeous, rich autumn colours, full of warmth for the colder months - and I love that it's so full of different colours, like a rainbow-filled flower garden.

It still makes me happy every time I look at it, and I hope it can do the same for you, too!
