helenium oil painting flower



Oil on Board
50 x 50 cms,19.5 x 19.5 inches

As an artist, I try and grow the majority of my inspiration, I see the whole process of growing and drawing as part of my creative process.  I grow heleniums every year as I love their daisy like flowers in a variety of different colours.  They attract many pollinators too.

As these flowers grow, fade and die, the shape of the petals change, this oil painting captures the flower just after full bloom, where the longer petals droop slightly but the smaller petals around the centre look as though they are antennae themselves. Mirroring the insects that visit them, last year the heleniums were covered in butterflies, so much so that I struggled to get a photo of my heleniums without a butterfly on them!
