California Wildflower, oil and enamel on canvas, 120 x 80 x 2 cm
California Wildflower, deep orange haze. The hillside glows under a setting sun, wildflower blaze.
Inspired by orange…I love this colour! So full of joy and life. A celebration of warmth and sunshine which wraps around me like a favourite sweater. The colours in California Wildflower are beautiful. Rich golden yellow to deep scarlet and bright juicy orange. The painting is a blaze of happiness. Tangled undergrowth is suggested by dripped and splashed paint and then California orange poppies are created using palette knifed strokes of oil paint. The sky off sets the golden orange field by using tones of grey and powder blue. Gold leaf flecks catch the light and glimmer in the undergrowth and golden paint suggests twigs and bramble. California Wildflower is ready to hang.
