I thought it looked familiar. I'd previously seen it at the exhibition by the two Sues at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art at Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, London, UK 12 Oct 2013 - 05 Jan 2014. See my blog post - 'Black and White in Colour' at Kew Gardens where you can also read more about Sue Wickison and her botanical artwork and also see examples of studies and colour mixing samples.

Sue Wickison also won this award in 2011. For those wanting to follow artists who are currently setting benchmarks can I recommend you follow Sue's website and her production of large format contemporary botanical art.
