Diary of an Adventure

Narine Vase

Oil on canvas 60cmx90cm

Painting of a vase of pink flowers and a sugar bowl, I wanted a loose, abstract feel to the painting. The Nerine bowline flowers are made up of spikes of starry delicate petals.

A medium sized canvas (60x90cm) gave me room, without the painting needing to be viewed from across the lagoon. I used a background of predominantly Ultramarine blue, broken with Cobalt blue and permanent madder.

Splotches of paint, sculptured the vase and sugar bowl, with the delicate flowers etched against the blue background. Not quite the Japanese simplicity I was hoping to achieve.
