Oil on Canvas 124cm x 91cm
Indigenous Erica’s growing at J9, with a touch of artistic license.
The painting has a strong masculine left, with a gentler feminine right has side. The red flowers, smaller to balance the dominant colour, especially with the orange gold underpainting. Pink Erica flowers gentler against the softer pastel like green and blues. I used stronger pink sections to link with the red flowers.
To move away from the botanical feeling of the flowers, I used slashes of background colours to break through the flowers.
