I have composed this painting from a collection of photos that I took of the colourful Runuclus growing in our garden. It was selected by Arts Connect Incorporated for the brochures and advertising for their ACI Open Studios in 2013, supported by Sunshine Coast Council.
In this work I have first sketched the composition with pastels, applied acrylic washes with binder for durability, and then worked in thicker oil paints. The sides are painted in acrylic, blue/black colour. I use artist quality Australian made oil and acrylic paints. This is painted on Belgian linen stretched over a stretcher bar. It can be hung with the D-rings or the wire already attached. Or you may choose to frame it. Painted in 2013.
