An abstract botanical silver painting of wild fauna and flowers in Queen Mary’s woods, Carshalton, Surrey 80cm by 80cm


Painting: Acrylic, Digital on canvas. This painting stems from a photograph in my local woods at the end of summer. There has been a lot of wild planting in the woods to attract natural species and I love to see the combination of flowers and grasses throughout the seasons. I spend many hours using photoshop to digitally manipulate it and then painted it using acrylics. It is like a new William Morris print that shows my love of nature and design.
As it has a silver metallic finish, it changes in different lights and I feel it makes a very appealing and attractive decorative art.

Jo Sharpe’s Contemporary Botanical Paintings

This abstract botanical silver painting of wild fauna forms part of my botanical paintings range. These paintings are a result of combing creativity, innovation, several artistic skills and the latest digital technology.

This collection first started  in 2016 with a series of art prints inspired by Cornish hedgerows. These are a series of digitally manipulated art prints that are really beautiful and innovative and quite different from my natural painting style. Recently I have wanted to develop these further by turning them into large paintings. So,  my contemporary botanical paintings are digitally manipulated photographs, that have been printed onto canvas and painted over the top with either several layers of acrylic or oil paint. Sometimes I hand paint over everything and sometimes I just paint the background. Often 3 coats of paint needs to be applied.

These are original contemporary works of art that alongside my Bespoke Art Cushions look fantastic and fashionable in interiors . Using my textile background I have created a coordinating range of home furnishings that can make your home look interior designed. I can accept special orders and colour match backgrounds to suit clients tastes. For example, this abstract botanical painting can be painted with a teal background. It goes well with ‘wild flowers and fauna in Oaks Park painting.’

Queen Mary’s Woods

Queen Mary’s Woods are situated in Carshalton Beeches and are a place I visit regularly on one my many walks.  They are particularly beautiful in the summer as Sutton Nature Conservation Volunteers have planted many species of wild flowers and grasses. Queen Mary’s Woods have inspired several other artworks. These are: Seed-heads gathered from Queen Mary’s Woods and the deer in Queen Mary’s Woods.

You are welcome to come to my studio to see my abstract botanical silver painting in real life. As I have used metallic paints the silver changes in the light and is really beautiful.
