Penny German is an artist from Northamptonshire. For the past five years she has been producing a painting a day.   These days she spends more time on larger paintings but still aims to produce small oil sketches as a regular discipline. Previously, 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.
