Kerry Foxgloves © Burnell McKenna

Digitalis sp. Vibrant and delicate, the foxglove is one of those flowers whose bells beam with delight. The warm fuchsias and violets were a pleasure for my artistic taste and suits wonderfully with palette. I captured the luminosity of these flowers captured on a nature trip to the Kerry, the most south westerly county of Ireland and was amazed by the wild beauty of this flower and decided to portray it in a larger than life size depiction of its glory on watercolour paper.
