Artist's Description

This is one of my “floral landscape” paintings, where a flower or plant motif is used to pattern the canvas and create a complex landscape of color.

While the floral elements are there they are used to create the subject of the painting – an abstracted landscape – rather than being themselves the subject. Very wet washes of oil were used on unprimed canvas and built up in layers to create a vibrant almost watercolor effect. The details in the flower elements were then painted in using brush and pallete impasto techniques. The topmost layer of detail was applied using a knife and heavy gel medium, acting almost as an “applique”.

The original oil painting is 36″×32″
