These conceptual plant paintings each have a story; which comes from my subjective perspective.
Colours and forms are somewhat distorted, yet still recognisable as being plant life versus wholly abstract renditions.

Waterlily Woodscape is layers of acrylic on framed birch ply. This painting is a rhythmic translation of the Waterlilies’ patterns in our pond.
You might also see a landscape in the scene, leading to the title of this work.
I’ve let the grain of the wood show wherever possible by using transparent acrylic. The flowing impression of the wood works with the leaves and pond around the waterlilies.
Colours are fanciful and quietly yet firmly opposed on the colour wheel.
