Let Colour Light The Way
Oil on pure linen
40 x 51cm
16" x 20"
Splashes of red, coral, blue and green richly adorn this painting depicting Australian native flowers and gum leaves; a carefree display of highly-textured professional oil paint applied to pure linen canvas to create a painting which is bound to put a smile on your face.
This still life painting of flowers in a simple prussian blue cup is inspired by the beautiful Australian native flora, trees, and plants which adorn our backyards, beaches, and park lands. It has been painted with a limited palette, focusing on teal, red, green, and grey hues, and applied thickly to provide some texture against the pure linen background.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
This painting was created using professional artist oil paint on gallery wrapped pure linen. There is some negative space in the pure linen so that the natural weave forms part of the overall artwork. The paint and linen are neither flat nor glossy; more of a satin finish, and the sides are sealed but unpainted. It is ready to hang right out of the box, with strong picture wire and felt pads. Only professional standard materials have been used.
