Heart of Flowers on a Sunlit Wall is quite different to the other Heartland Watercolours as, obviously, it's (almost) all one colour, with the viridian, in just the smallest of touches here and there, suggesting a minimal structure within the heart of flowers. I wanted to experiment to see if I could make an interesting picture without my usual super-excited colour palette! What I like about this one, now it's finished, is you can almost imagine that the heart/flowers are actually painted on a sunlit worn-out wall, the sort you might find in a farmhouse in Spain or France. But then the pot and the stem throw a spanner in the works and you have to imagine the heart structure growing in a pot. Or maybe the whole thing - pot, stem, ground, flowers - is painted on the wall? If you stare at the painting for a while and try to work out what your eyes are seeing, it gets a bit strange as your brain finds different explanations that either work, or don't work. And then you have to look again! So, for me, it turned out to be not only an interesting exercise in colour but also an interesting exercise in 'what am I actually seeing?' Hope that whatever you see, it's at least something you like!
