Crimson and Thorns

Crimson grevillia, grey spike thorns, photo,

Commanding all eyes,  with sharp and rich crimson blades,  the grevillia’s petals twist and bend to emerge.

Slender tendrils of carrot orange,  curl towards the centre and capped by lovely bonnets of pale dove grey thorns.

The exquisite textures, patterns, details and rich contrasts of the grevillia is an artist’s dream.

Whether in photography, printmaking, botanical art, photorealism, abstraction or nearly any other genre…… the grevillia

is a magnificent source of creative inspiration.
