Watercolour: Fiery Petals

Fiery Petals £50

I love painting larger-than-life flowers.

First of all, I cherish the opportunity to study them in minute detail, admiring all the complexity of colours and textures that nature endowed them with.

Secondly, it gives me sensual pleasure to witness watercolours find their way across rough paper, mixing together and revealing the paper here, obscuring it there.

For “Fiery Petals” I used a combination of dry paper method for the grass and yellow petals and wet paper method for the red petals in order to make the latter stand out.

Buy this painting at Kava Cafe, Rochdale Rd, Todmorden, until 1 December – or from me directly at poeticoxana@gmail.com
