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

I grow the majority of the flowers that inspire my art from seed.  I grow them in my south facing garden in Sussex which becomes my studio too in the summer months.  I want to show the tiny flowers in the landscape that we don’t normally see, and this oil painting is no different. 

Violas are little gems in the spring that give us hope that the weather is soon to change. The flowers are small and glow from the grass, with their bright purple and yellow faces.  To get this affect in the painting I layer very thin layers of oil paint so that the paint glows from the artwork.  I have layered the flowers in the composition so that it reflects the way in which they grow all jostling for space, layering their flat flowers over each other.
