Violet Haze, oil and enamel on canvas, 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two panels each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm (Diptych).
Inspired by the abundance of wild lavender on the hillside around my home. Violet Haze has been created in an expressionist style with thrown and dripped paint. Palette knifed floral detail brings a focus and clarity to the painting whilst adding texture. Gold paint in the suggested undergrowth creates depth and catches sunlight whilst a fine iridescent sheen in the sky glitters and suggests morning dew. Small areas of gold leaf particles catch light adding an extra dimension to the artwork. Violet Haze is a large painting on two canvas frames. It can be hung with both panels together or with a slight space. Violet Haze is ready to hang.
