Limited edition print (200). Watercolour area 165 x 139 mm. This painting was made in 2013 in County Galway, Ireland.

Early spring in Galway. I had seen the work of an artist on Flickr who uses a very simple style, involving line drawing with just one or two colours. It inspired me to paint these crocuses and I found it to be a lovely way to paint. It’s particularly good for an expanse of flowers of one colour. This painting will always say “February” to me, as it’s my birthday month, and my grandmother gave me a crocus on my birthday when I was ten. It came up year after year just outside the dining room window in time for my birthday, through snow and ice and everything that February threw at it.
