Thistle – Asteraceae. The prickly leaved thistle is often seen as an unattractive invader. But those prickles protect it from being eaten by herbivores, and it in turn provides a haven for ladybirds. If you look closely at the flowers they are quite beautiful and they provide great resources for pollinators. They also produce seeds which feed the garden favourite, the gold finch. Also the fluff they produce makes a beautiful lining for birds nests.
The wild corner is a celebration of our lesser loved, but so important wildflowers and a plea to allow just a small corner of your garden to run wild, allowing these important plants to flourish. You can read more about it here and here.
This original watercolour features the thistle with a selection of the creatures it supports
- Meadow Brown Butterfly for nectar
- Painted Lady Butterfly
- White Tailed Bumblebee
- 7 Spotted Ladybird
This giclée print is reproduced from Ian’s original watercolour and pen and ink drawing.
The prints are beautifully printed onto sustainable Hahnemühle Hemp 290gsm Fine Art Paper. An eco friendly paper, with a natural white tone. It has a subtle surface giving the paper a pleasant, silky feel.
Hemp is a resource saving plant whose robust and long-lasting fibres have been a part of paper production for centuries, most notably used for the Gutenberg Bible and US Declaration of Independence. The image is printed using archival quality, Fine Art Trade Guild approved printers, inks and papers — tests have shown the prints can last over 100 years.
Frame not included.
The prints are from original artworks by Ian Hughes.
