Garden Border with Phlomis and Euphorbia
Inspired by nature, painter Rosalind Wise (British, b. 1949) studies individual plants and flowers in detail, tracing their changes through the year. Contrary to what her subject matter might suggest, Wise does not work en plein air but in her home studio, from studies made in situ, from specimens she has collected, and from photographs she has taken. Consequently, she is free to interpret nature on a grand scale—her canvases are typically four to five feet across.
