Description

My friend Murray is a talented potter (Murray Topham) and this is one of his beautiful, delicate vases. I picked some Pittosporum Undulatum (Native Daphne) from a tree across the road from Enmore park and popped it in this vase and produced 2 very different paintings around the same time.

I have been experimenting with different mediums lately and these two paintings are excellent examples of how different types of paint and their unique characteristics can have such a huge impact on the outcome of a piece. For this painting I have really enjoyed the flexibility and richness of the buttery oil paint. Where as, the other painting of the same subject has been painted in Acrylic Gouache which naturally lends itself to a very graphic painting style due to it's quick drying, flat nature.
