Gorgeous rich ruby red stalks splaying out in verticals and diagonals.
The reds, a perfect foil to the citrine green foliage.
Delightful Colors found in the garden.
This photograph, is one of the few, I would use as a direct source to paint from.
It would (and will) make a lovely illustration, for my Society 6 and Redbubble shops.
Generally, I’m not so keen to use one photo as a painting source.
But, there’s always exceptions.
This I think would be brilliant on pure white hot pressed paper with no background whatsoever.
Or, it might make a very strong design as a linoprint.
Strolling about, does, have plenty of rewards.
Had I been ‘power walking’ I’d have missed out on this beauty.
The composition is especially interesting, with the verticals and diagonals.
The textural patterns within the leaf foliage, create added interest.
Leaves and stalks going gently out of the picture frame assist the design.
Making it seem less ‘crammed in.’
More open, more …. real.
