Still Life - Orange by Julie-Ann Vellios

I love orange, especially next to blue.
A tiny work in acrylic and oil inspired by Margaret Preston.

I am inspired by organic forms in nature as well as the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements so I tend towards work which is rustic and linear and colours which can also be decorative and often symbolic.

I love to paint and draw and to see other people’s art and am looking forward to making some connections with others – which is really what it is all about, for me.

    I love the colours in this painting, especially that blue. Great work.

  • Thanks Gary. Good to meet you. I have been afraid of using colour for a while but now that I am a bit more confident, it’s a great experience to explore colour, isn’t it.

    I love the colors and the style of this. It might just be that I like Van Gogh, but that’s what this reminds me of, Van Gogh’s style :) I like this alot!

    Hi sarah, thanks for the comment. After all these years I am finally not scared to use colours – I was nervous about it for a long time. Van Gogh is a good teacher.
