With my passion for Lavender and my affinity to France ,it had to be done. This painting has been on my mind for some time and on my easel for a lot longer ! its taken sometime to complete this piece, I wanted to capture the big sky and the clarity of light of the region. Its a dramatic painting a golden sun rises over the mountains casting light on the field of lavender plants .The work was created applying heavy body acrylics with a palette knife giving the finished work a structural quality
Colette Baumback Colette’s work is texture and colour in its natural landscape, an exploration of light and moods, hewn from nature and the seasons. Flora and fauna brought to life with an evocative sense of joy. Using contoured acrylics, in multiple layers of colour, her palette knife captures the stunning beauty of her floral subjects with a sense of awe and celebration. Impressionistic, organic, and sometimes with hints of abstract, these meaningful compositions never fail to inspire, transforming the viewer into a participant rather than a spectator. Colette’s artworks are sold to discerning individuals around the world who describe her work as exquisite, beautiful, captivating and the perfect work of art to transform the spirit of any room or space. “I have an intense desire to recreate the spirit of nature, to reflect its incredible intricacy and beauty. I want to bring nature to life on my canvases. My earliest childhood memories are daubed with scenes of myself painting and making my pictures. It has always been a part of who I am. I am self-taught and have developed my own unique style. The process of painting and creating captivates me, allowing my emotional response to develop and fuse into the subject. I work with a palette knife, cloth and a variety of implements, exploring the structure of the subject, building up layers of paint, colour and texture. My art is a reflection of my fascination with the natural elements in our surroundings. I am inspired by the richness of colour and texture in the natural landscape. I am compelled to paint. I undertake commissions. If there is a particular subject, painting, style or idea you would like, I would be delighted to hear from you.” Colette
