This is a small artwork (30 x 30 cm) featuring one of the blooms from a “Little Gem” magnolia that we planted years ago. It is now about 8 meters tall. Magnificent large flowers with thick, creamy, cup-like petals. They are gorgeous flowers and never cease to amaze me. So I love to try to capture something of their beauty as each petal unfurls from bud to tip. And the scent is rich and captivating.
I paint in acrylics and oils - I use the same techniques for both. This is acrylic, but it looks like oils, as I use the same techniques of underpainting and glazing in layers. I use many colours in translucent layers, with loose expressive brushstrokes. Is This achieves the luscious painterly appearance of the petals. It is painted on a stretched canvas with clean white edges. D rings and cord attached for hanging.
