I used some fresh flowers from the market as my muse for this piece titled "Energize Me". The flowers were yellow, but the colours that came through on the paper were are colours of a split-complementary palette based on yellow as the focal colour and it's complement (purple) and adjacent partnering colours because THAT is the most exciting combination to use! I felt the energy off the flowers rather than just seeing their mellow yellow colours. It's the way it seems to work for me, I sense the essence of the subject rather than doing a visual realism interpretation even though I really love realism. My way of artistic expression is through that most intangible but powerful senses - feeling/sensing/emotion and comes out as expressionistic and abstraction.
This floral piece measures 9" (22.86 cm) x 12" (30.48 cm) and is done on watercolour paper. Signed in lower right front corner.
