Artist's Description

Arum lilies done one the back of a sheet of Photo printing paper, using coffee (Nescafé Instant, black and VERY strong!)) for the back-ground, and watercolour for the flowers. This paper is actually very thin, and ever so slightly glossy, so it was a completely different feel painting on this in stead of my normal heavy-weight watercolour paper I’m used to. It’s also not conducive to allowing the paint, or coffee, to freely flow and mix. I also gave the back-ground a slight salt treatment, which then promptly refused to budge once the painting was dry! I had to scrub it off with a nail brush! I used fine table salt, maybe that could be the reason… But it has somehow imparted a raw quality to the painting. ██Ɔ

Zantedeschia is native to southern Africa from South Africa north to Malawi. The Zantedeschia species are poisonous due to the presence of calcium oxalate. All parts of the plant are toxic, and produce irritation and swelling of the mouth and throat, acute vomiting and diarrhoea.
