This image was painted from a series of photographs of a private garden in Fife, Scotland. These tall thistle-like flowers have such a wonderful shape and colour to their petals, and I enjoyed playing around with the background colour to emphasis them.
If you are interested in a giclee print of this image, please contact me. I am in the process of uploading prints to ArtFinder.
Original oil painting on a hand-built box canvas stretcher. The sides have pristine, white edges, and it is sealed using Gamvar archive quality picture varnish. I use only professional grade Old Holland and Michael Harding oils, for their high pigment content, and excellent light fastness.
