Further fungi .....

I mentioned in a previous post in October, how I had started a painting of fungi. http://thenaturalyear.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/autumn-ramble-and-further-fungi.html

The species originate from an area of woodland in the New Forest, which is in the county of Hampshire, UK.

This is just a quick post to update you on the progress of the painting. Three more species have been illustrated with a few more still to go.

The species are Sulphur tuft (top right), Cortinarius sanguineous (lower right), and a tiny Amethyst deciever (left).

On another note, my exhibition has been well attended and several paintings have sold.  The exhibition is on at Hardings Picture Framing and Gallery in Warsash until 18th November.

I'll be painting again in the gallery on Friday 14th November from 10.30am - 3.00pm.  The image for the new blog banner above was taken in the gallery last week, painting sand dollars in my sketchbook.


  1. Great to see your fungi paintings Sarah. And lovely to see you at work in the gallery :) x

  2. Sarah, I love your new banner picture--it's so colorful and expressive of what you do. Your show looks fantastic and I only wish I could see it in person. The frames set off your beautiful work very well.


It is always lovely to hear your comments. Please feel free to leave them here and I will approve them asap.
