This is an oil painting of a seated female nude in front of a large pink lily on bright green ground.
The painting is an ode to femininity. In Buddhism, the tiger lily represents mercy, compassion, and the aggressive traits associated with feminine nature. I have synthesized this by juxtaposing this model’s pose with a large lily. It’s feminine but also fierce. With the color of the flower, I have taken some liberties: it is shocking pink instead of the usual orange. But that’s the freedom I have as a painter.
This oil painting is a handmade, unique artwork, signed at the back. It is painted on linen, using artist grade oil paints, media and varnish. The painting is composed of several overlapping layers that work together to create a three-dimensional effect. You can find more detailed information on my painting method including a few examples of successive paint layers of a painting in the 'Me at work' section of this website.
The artwork will be shipped in a sturdy cardboard box, secured and wrapped in special laminated bubble wrap to ensure the safety of the painting during transport. Shipping is provided by DPD (Europe, 2-5 days) or PostNL (NL, US, Canada, Australia). For NL, PostNL usually delivers the next day after shipping. Outside the EU, the shipping time depends on the time it takes for the package to go through customs.
