Penny German is an artist from Northamptonshire. For many years she specialized in botanical illustration in watercolour, working on projects for the RHS and Oxford University Press. Ten years ago she discovered a love of oil painting and has since been working to capture the effects of light in still lifes and portraits.
Currently she is working on a painting-a-day project, producing one small still-life each day as a sketchbook exercise and a record of her progress. These small still-life oil paintings are then sent out on a blog each day to her growing band of followers.
She also works plein-air, capturing the local countryside and works in a larger format for exhibitions.
