Love Me Posy is an original watercolour painting by Jo Haran. The red of the poppies suggest love tangled in a wild posy of mixed flowers, roses, anemones and hydrangea pulled together with dark inky leaves for depth. I love to play with mediums using loose ink and more controlled gouache.
Size: H:72 cm x W:54 cm

'There are always flowers for those who want to see them" - Henri Matisse.
I have been painting flowers for over 20 years as an artist and as a senior textile designer selling prints to clients internationally including Valentino, Leonard, Paul and Joe and high street brands such as Topshop and Marks and Spencer.
My love of florals started at a young age - brought up in Somerset in a family of horticulturists and an artist father, I would paint in the vast garden as much fascinated by the leaves as the flower heads themselves.
I'm interested in exploring the fragility and beauty of the natural world, the lightness and translucency of petals and the texture and multiple colour in foliage. I work spontaneously in layers of mixed media on watercolour paper - gouache, watercolour ink and gesso - striking for a fluid tension between detailed areas and soft focus with always a strong compositional element.
