Scarlet Lullaby, oil and enamel on canvas, 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two panels each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm
Scarlet Lullaby. Crimson and violet poppy fields sway under an evening sky. A haze of flowers ripples in the breeze. Dark clouds come, but I will dream in peace, A Scarlet Lullaby
Scarlet Lullaby is inspired by wildflowers. I wanted to fill the canvas with beautiful shades of purple and crimson. The depth of the colour is astounding and is offset by a neutral grey blue sky and the deep orange tones of a setting sun. Bright yellow dandelions complement the rich hues of the somniferous poppies beautifully and represent stars in the night sky. Dripped paint applied in an expressionist style suggests tangled grass and flecks of gold paint light up the artwork as they catch sunlight bringing depth and intrigue to the painting. Scarlet Lullaby is ready to hang.
