Scarlet Song, oil and enamel on canvas, 170 x 110 x 3 cm
Scarlet Song, bright crimson red against a Mediterranean blue sky. Summer remembered. Inspired by white washed Portuguese villas and the bright colour contrast of vivid scarlet Bougainvillea and intensely blue summer skies, Scarlet Song is bold and vivacious. Created with an expressionist broken background to suggest fragmented summer light Scarlet Song has contrasting fuchsia and red palette knifed petals and deep green twisted leaves. Blush pink wild roses lay twisted in the branches of the fiery Bougainvillea bringing a focus and clarity to the artwork. Gold flashes of paint catch and reflect light suggesting the summer sun. Scarlet Song is a large oil painting at 170 x 110 cm and commands attention. It is ready to hang.
