A Lovely painting Satu :)

'In the Underworld' great design and colours. Strong.

Really like the design element to this Satu, with the strong contrast in darks and lights - and the small patches of light yellow break up the vertical lines to great effect.

You have really achieved a sense of looking through into the dark interior of the plant with this version Satu. I like the strong vertical element and the colours are lovely!

Love it Satu strong work

I think this is beautiful Satu

Love the different approach Satu, it almost looks as though it&#39;s a snap shot of a jungle scene. I have a Gunnera in the garden and they remind me of a land forgotten almost prehistoric in their appearance, especially the flower spikes errupting out of the ground beneath the canopy of giant leaves. Don&#39;t get me started on gardening!!!lol How about,<br />&#39;Beneath the Canopy&#39;?<br />

Thank you ever so much Maria, Gudrun, Jenny, Julie, Dennis, Russell and Fiona for your comments and suggestions! In the Underworld and Under the Canopy both sound good.

This is special, Satu. Very attractive harmonious colours.

Thank you very much Ann!

The colours used are brilliant. What a lovely piece of work.

Hi Satu, maybe &quot;beneath the beauty of Gunnera&quot; :)

Yes this a real winner Satu - I can just imagine it set off in a frame.

Many thanks Marjorie and Michael, much appreciated. Thank you Maria for the suggestion!

Beautiful greens beautifully painted Satu. The blue gives it such energy. Vigorously Verdant I would call it.

It seems a bit musical, Satu. Beautiful painting.

Thank you very much Carole and Shirley!

That is so striking Satu, beautiful colours for a beautiful painting.

Thank you very much Val!

Oh wow wow wow! Very powerful, Satu...would love it on my wall!

Thank you very much Ruth!

Wow Satu, how fantastic is this! I&#39;m away from home at the moment and just having a quick look at the gallery and see this beautiful painting! Love everything about it!

Thank you Christine! Enjoy your holiday!

This is EXCELLENT, Satu! Such wonderful use of positive and negative shapes, and a gorgeous palette to boot!

Many thanks Seok, you&#39;re always so kind.

Hang on Studio Wall

This is a second version of the Gunnera plant with a completely different approach. I can't think of a tittle, any suggestions?
