Playing in Nature with Artist Rosie Harbottle
In the Studio with Rosie Harbottle
Rosie Harbottle is an artist based on the edge of Dartmoor, Devon. She draws inspiration from her surrounding landscape, flowers and the beauty of everyday objects. Working predominantly with acrylic on canvas and oil pastels, Rosie creates colourful, expressive and textural representations of flora and fauna that celebrate the natural world and living alongside it.
“I’m always in pursuit of the perfect palette. Colour can evoke so much feeling. It’s always the first consideration when I begin a new painting.”
This series of prints is inspired by the playfulness of outdoor pursuits and how we interact with nature. Using a palette of rich colours, loose brush strokes and mark-making, the flowers, insects and nature motifs depicted in this series evoke a sense of optimism and joy.
