Barbara Watson (fl. 1956-69) - Brambles. Gouche. floral  flowers blackberry %%alt5%% %%alt6%%
Barbara Watson first painted flowers at the age of seven, but had no training at art school. Her hobby of studying flowers and her wish to paint combined. She painted only from living specimens, aiming at complete botanical accuracy using gouache and watercolour in conjunction.

In 1956, Watson won the Grenfell Medal at the Royal Horticultural Society Show with a series of 100 wildflowers from the Holy Land, and several of them were reproduced by Rainbird in the Bible Companion in 1959. In November 1967, she gained the Royal Horticultural Society Silver medal for six paintings of roses.

Barbara Watson had an exhibition of her work in London in 1968 and also exhibited with the Society of Women Artists.

This piece exhibits the artist's aim of obtaining complete botanical accuracy. Each thorn on the stalk and reflection of light on the blackberries has been carefully depicted. The work is clearly signed and dated '69' to the lower right. The work is housed in its original gilt and white frame.
