5 on Friday: 5 Floral Water Colours From Charles Rennie Mackintosh

This wasn’t the post I had planned for this weeks 5 on Friday but after reading and then reviewing ‘Mr Mac and Me’ earlier in the week I found myself browsing the internet for examples of Rennie Mackintosh’s work. I soon became lost in his botanical watercolours.   It’s no secret that I love flowers so anything with a floral content is bound to appeal.  These are so delicate but also so detailed.  I particularly love that they  were all painted in Walberswick, the setting for the book, a place I have visited often and a place  where I enjoyed the best fish and chips of my life.

I thought I would bring a bit of cheer to this ‘sunny’ August Friday by sharing some of them with you.
