Autumn Updates

Just a quick update on the blog for a catch up.
At the National Botanic garden of Wales there will be another fungi event day on Sunday the 11th of October. I will be there this year with a stand showing paintings and doing a watercolour demonstration. The day is full of fungi events like forays, food, lots of different types of art and woodcarving to name a few things. I visited the event last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was fantastic so I hope it will be this year too for the forays. 


I've been working on all sorts of fungi (and lichen) art, like these mushroom mosaics, which are quite abstract. They are in watercolours but I have also done a couple on canvas using gouache and acrylic.
 I've been out foraying and filling my mushroom journal to show at the festival aswell.


I also have a workshop at Denmark Farm on the 18th of October which will be inspired by fungi and autumn.
Happy foraying!

  2. Claire, your fungi drawings and the close ups are fascinating. It was a great year for collecting specimens, so you must have really enjoyed recording so many different specimens and naming them, What a lovely journal.
