This circular blossom painting on a blue background with detailed golden bark is created with the intention of giving the viewer more and more satisfaction the more they look at it.
At first you see the pleasing shape of the blossom, then as you continue to look you discover more and more life hidden away. Next house see the birds in the branches, followed by a fly then a caterpillar... This image is satisfying to the passing eye and rewarding to those who spot the hidden gems of nature.
Inspired by Japanese watercolour blossoms I have used acrylic in order to achieve the vivid intensity I desired thus giving this historically classic style a contemporary feel.
I then sought to use a childhood memory of looking at a plant in the garden and then when looking closer I discovered it was teeming with life. This sense of hidden life and activity what I have sought to achieve here.
I hope you enjoy.
