Celia Moriarty creates art to inspire others to see beauty and to want more of it in the world. She believes by connecting with nature and beauty around us we connect with our strongest selves.
On Sundays, when Celia was young, her family would walk in the Adelaide hills and spot wildflowers and orchids hidden in the bush. Celia’s mother Judy would bring an arm full of wildflowers home to adorn the kitchen and sometimes we pressed or drew them. The study of biology and later medicinal herbs developed my interest as Celia sketched and doodled along with daily life.
Now she wants to give Australian native flora centre stage to help more people enjoy its unique beauty. Becoming more aware of the plants around us brings us in touch with the seasons and the flow of nature. It stimulates the brain differently and keeps us engaged with the world around us.
In this tutorial, Celia explains how to create a simple but powerful tool to manipulate the intensity in the colour in your paintings, without creating mud.
