About this artwork

Between 1933 and 1938 Royds made a series of flower prints. ‘Honeysuckle’ is an example of her bold woodcut technique combined with a vibrant colour scheme. The dark background contrasts against the vivid colours of the foliage and petals to create an almost abstract design. Although Royds had travelled extensively and lived in both Canada and India, she always enjoyed depicting the simple things that she encountered in everyday life.
