My Fantastic Flowers paintings originally came from an uncompromising physical sense that I wanted to paint big – and fast, with wide arm-swinging movements! To start, I draw freehand with a dropper full of black ink and then spray the drawing with water before the ink dries. This sets a very expressive foundation for the painting. Then I loosely add my favourite colours to complete the picture, letting them flow freely, outside the lines if they like, to enhance the dynamism of the original drawing, while I purposely leave the accidental inky splashes to bring life to the unpainted white canvas background. The largest works are created in exactly this way, with the smaller ones having their own variant of this method.
My Fantastic Flowers paintings are all available for licensing.
They're also for sale as originals, prints and cards, with the originals ranging from 20x20cm to 80x80cm. These lively, vibrant florals are created with acrylic inks on stretched canvas. Intentionally airy and light in spirit, they make a surprisingly bold impression when on the wall.
