Botanical Sketches by Mackintosh

I am getting inspired. I am working on a mural design using Botanical flowers. Also, I’m writing a unit for instruction called CRAFT.

Just yesterday, I discovered the work of Charles Mackintosh. Over his career, he worked as a interior designer, painter, furniture designer, textile artist and all that I aspire to generally become.

His sketches of flowers were simply amazing. This one the Cactus Flower.

How would you like to have these framed and hanging in your salle de bains, (sounds so much nicer than bathroom doesn’t it) ?

Ah-The famous Mackintosh Roses.


Next week, you’re in for some excitement. We have a Giveaway Wednesday and Gallery visit Thursday.

I will also find time to show off my new mural sketches.

Have a sweet relaxing weekend!

    Hi Hilary! thanks for the email. I’ve taught a watercolor lesson using Mackintosh’s flowers many times, and it’s a winner! Everyone succeeds! His style is so beautiful, simple and graphic.

  2. Hi Hilary, I wanted to stop by and thank you for commenting on my “before & after” home make-over on Design*Sponge. There’s many photos they didn’t include, along with more info about our remodel. You can visit my blog to learn more at The Old Painted Cottage
