August: Art to Inspiration

This month's A2I post features artist Lara Harwood's "...now imagine all the thick birdsong thick as a forest"

Harwood's watercolour paintings are sublime, the type of work that could enhance any space with their bright, vivid colours, illustrative nature and minimal subject matter.

This jungley image from Harwood's sketchbook of watercolours from India, 2009, is a piece that really took me back to my own journey through Kerala's backwaters in Feb 2010.

The composition of heavy greenery vs the simple silhouette encapsulates the very nature of Kerala's scenery.

Today, Harwood's watercolour has inspired me to reminisce...

Last month's Art to Inspiration featured my own work (thanks Sups!): July
