Art Edit presents a curated selection of artists whose work is inspired by nature.
Sydney-based artist Sarah Waghorn is a self-proclaimed “colour enthusiast” – a title that is well-represented in her subtly gradated botanical works, inspired by neighbourhood walks. Sarah’s background as an art director in London – as well as her cited influences: David Hockney, Margaret Olley, Vincent Van Gogh and Henri Matisse – comes through in the intricacy of the work, and the deftness with which she uses tonal shifts to perfectly capture light play on her subject.
The artist will usually start with a small, gouache sketch to work out the colour and composition of the piece before painting alla prima, layering on oil paints in clear brushstrokes that eventually create culminate in textured landscapes of bright, dappled colour.
