Object Detail

Watercolour painting on rectangular sheet of brown paper, with a brown window mount, and backing. The painting is a botanical illustration of part of a plant with flowers and seeds, thought to be Epilobium. Several branching stems are depicted with opposite and alternate leaves. The leaf blades are oval-shaped, green on top and red underneath, with serrated margins. At the terminal ends of the stems are small flowers on long red pedicels. The flowers have multiple free white petals radiating out from yellow centres. At the ends of some stems are long red seed capsules. Near the base of the plant one seed capsule is depicted open, split and radiating out in to five parts. There are leaves and flowers depicted in a wash of colours.

The painting is marked "NiNA JONES"
