Oil on board 16″ x 12″
A dramatic rendering of a giant white rose with both colourful lights and darks. Painted Alla Prima directly onto gessoed board with bold bravura brushwork. The shadow play has been expertly observed and gives the whole work a highly 3 -dimensional effect. The subtle colourations throughout this piece keeps the viewers eye engaged with optical blending. True to say that something can be gained by the pleasure of looking at it on a daily basis.
