From my ‘Paintings of Plants’ collection inspired by the many pot plants that I surround myself with at home. Gathered over the years, they have become a feature of my city life in London, living in flats and converted warehouses where plants gather onto window ledges and balconies. I wanted to convey the individual character of each plant, their lopsided leaf arrangements and vibrant natural greens.
This picture is a ‘Christmas Cactus’ in a terracotta pot. So called as they flower from late November to late January. Their leaves are thick chunky segments, radiating out from the middle of the plant. The composition uses a complimentary colour balance, making use of the plant’s natural green foliage and playing this against the red the terracotta pot.
Giclée prints are made using the best archive grade art inkjet machines, directly onto fine art paper. The Hahnemühle German Etching paper is a 310gsm mould made watercolour paper. The textured surface is similar to original etching paper of traditional fine art printing, and captures the painterly surface of the original oil on canvas painting.
