Original Canvas - Birch and Blossoms on Jade - 30" x 40"
Acrylic, Paper Collage, Ink, Pen, Varnish, on Canvas.
A very tactile and textural painting, featuring Silver Birch trees in scant autumn leaf, set to shades of jade green, little pops of copper, and loose pale blossoms, with warmth from washes of burnt sienna and nut brown inks. An elegant colour palette, vibrant without being garish. The birch leaves are made from paper collage. All Lily's paper collage is created from copies of her own original painting studies.
The acrylics, inks and pen work have been overlaid with a glossy varnish, enhancing colour, adding protection, and offering an opulent shine.
Nature is common to all of Lily's work, however she would never claim to offer gritty realism. Lily describes it more like focusing on an aspect of its beauty and running with it, seeing where it can be taken. Simplicity is key, which to Lily means creating something which people can hopefully take some pleasure and enjoyment from.
The canvas is stretched on a deep edge wooden frame with painted sides. Included is a made to measure floating frame, which is easy to remove if preferred. The frame is finished with Littlefair's water based non-toxic water stain in 'English Oak'. Ready to hang.
Please be aware that this canvas has a gloss finish, and some surface texture/relief as a result of the layered paints and varnish, depicted in the photographs as truthfully as possible.
