Last of the Summer Roses / Oil on canvas board
The Roses were painted in Trevor’s Church Garden 2016, this work represents, as it’s title befits , the very last tiny blooms of Summer. Whites and pinks have been used with impasto brushwork displaying bravura actions. Alla Prima Flower painting at its finest. The whole work shows an extremely high decorative yet artistic finish. Framed in painted wood hand finished by the artist. The tiny petals can be seen as dancing shapes against a somewhat blurred background giving the whole work an intense depth of field. The sunlit shapes appear to move in the viewers eye as if moved by a gentle breeze.
