Initial letter 'Q' handpainted in purple with Scots thistles.

Initial letter 'Q' handpainted in purple with Scots thistles.
Love this


Manuscript initial letter 'Q' handpainted in purple with Scots thistles on high quality watercolour paper and framed within a square ivory mount.

Thistles are universally known as the emblem of Scotland and all things Scots - representing both strength and defiance, both very Scottish traits (at least we like to think so!)

CUSTOM IDEA - I could also paint the letter in a paler lilac (or in light or dark green?) so if you think you might prefer either of those colours get in touch with me before ordering and I'll be happy to paint your initial for you.

Your order will be sent within 3-5 days of being placed and paid for - by First Class if to within the UK and by Airmail if to outside the UK. (Rest assured I will pack your initial in several layers of cardboard to ensure you receive it in perfect condition.)

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions at all.


Finished size is - 120 x 120mm or 4 and 3/4 square.


Thistles are both decorative and stylish and I love to paint them - from the pale and darker shades of purple in the flowerheads to adding the tiny hairs along the stems which help to soften the greens and bring the colours together.

That and also, purple is my favourite colour.

Custom idea - letters painted in green also look great with thistles. Let me know before ordering if you would prefer that.
