AMBER TREE – Oil on Canvas 2016

AMBER TREE

Oil on Canvas 30 x 40 cm, 2016

This piece was inspired by the fantastical narratives of folk tales. I built up layers of paint and textures to create rich, deep colours and vibrancy. The flora in the painting is influenced by the vintage botanical illustration, especially Ernst Haeckel’s alien-like scientific plant and seed drawings.
The painting is oil on canvas board, framed with solid wood deep edge white frame.
