Sunlit Oil on board framed 20"x 16"

Sunlit is a joyful work of art. Painted Alla Prima with boldness and vigourous strokes of paint displaying the artists power of Bravura ! Fully open rose blooms, sun struck by the¬†early afternoon light, accompanied by dark foliage in an upright format. The composition tumbles forward to the viewer, displaying four overlapping flowers in full bloom. ” There is, in my mind , nothing more beautiful to gaze upon in nature than Roses in full bloom, struck by the sun’s rays.” This work celebrates that sentiment especially in it’s loose rendering and Bravura¬†brush strokes. The painting also represents the artist’s obsession with three dimensional qualities.
