Flora Graphica ‘Flower Explosion’

Flora Graphica  ‘Flower Explosion’

It worked very well, Chrissie.

Cleverly thought out and executed Chrissie, a lovely painting and palette.

Thanks for your comments Dawn and Fiona. I find this feedback so helpful.

Very accomplished work.

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on canvas 40x40cms. This was quite an experiment with the grid on the tablecloth...I thought that it was important to vary the pale colours on the squares and that made for more interesting painting too. At one point I had a small object on the table but wanted to simplify the composition and replaced it with a cobalt teal directional mark to pick up the colours in the flowers. I wanted to keep the graphic nature of the drawing of the flower heads, as this is what I have been exploring with the Graphica series. In the end, I thought the title Flower Explosion suited i quite well!
