Ready to Hang
Inspired by the wonderful planting at Salutation Gardens in Kent that I visited late May. The Rose and Lavender border was stunning, behind lay the wildflower meadow the combination of all my favourites blew me away! I have spent a couple of weeks on this painting trying to do it justice, I am very happy with the result . The work is on a large deep edge canvas 80 x80x4 cms it is signed on the front sold unframed and ready to hang. It was created with acrylic applied with a palette knife giving the painting structure and depth.
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
