BOTANICA

Acrylic on Canvas

101cm x 152cm x 4cm

Large pastel coloured abstract painted in acrylic on canvas. This painting was painted in many layers to create texture and depth.  All the colours from the under layers show through to provide interesting character. Your imagination can interpret the various shapes and contours into flowers, leaves, butterflies, mushrooms, water ponds.

Each individual will see something different in this painting which was my intention, I like to make the viewer work to enjoy the painting.  I don’t want my pieces to simply be interior décor art but something individual and full of interest.

I hope you can see your botanical garden in this piece.

Returning to Oil Painting

It has been quite a while since I have got out my oil paints – maybe years!  I had always loved painting with the rich and creamy oil paint but the length of the drying time was the reason I went to acrylic paint.  I was always in a hurry to complete my works.

Don’t get me wrong, I love acrylic paint – they are so versatile and fast drying but OILS are just wonderful and the oil colour is so vibrant and the texture is so silky and organic –  I have fallen in love with Oils again!

SO I will just have to get used to taking life at a slower pace when I work in Oil.  Naturally I will continue to paint in acrylics as well.

Below is the first large oil painting I have finished since my return to this medium.

Nymph in the Rainforest.
