Additional Information

Afternoon Delight – Staying at the beach near Rosebud in Victoria, I noticed the banksia trees which line the foreshore are in full bloom: magnificent, rustic and simply lovely. I was very glad I packed my kit, so I could sketch and paint on the spot as the lapping of waves on the seaside and local birds kept me company.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
I started by deciding to change the background which should have been pale grey (it was an overcast day) to bright pink, soft mauve, and a little grey. I positioned the banksia flowers within the canvas and sketched in the main branches. The leaves started to emerge, and as I progressed, more layers of thick paint were applied using the palette knife and brush. I later scratched with the edge of a business card and added more lines to the leaves.

Essentially, I thought it was important to retain the muted colours of those beautiful leaves and flowers, so left the tree in natural colours, but I also wanted some serious ‘kapow’ with the background. I believe a bright splash of colour is just what we need right now.

Please note, the sides are painted in a similar pink to the background – I can change this on request, and let me know if you need photos.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born into a family of musicians, authors, actors, photographers and painters, it was natural that life lead me here, poised at the canvas, brush in hand. I live entirely off-grid at my bushland home in rural Victoria with hubby, dogs and a gorgeously prolific vegetable garden.

I use art to express my immense – well, let’s say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks. Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.

Like something similar in a different size or using different colours? I am happy to discuss commission requests.

Please note, I do not produce prints of my artwork.

Best,
