Waratahs and Flannel Flowers

"Waratah's and Flannel Flowers''

This painting was designed to sit with 'A Garden Wonderland'.  Both paintings are bright, cheerful and oozing texture.  The techique used was to wet the first pastel layer with alcohol and then intuitively respond to that initial layer.  I have pulled out shapes according to what the underpainting presented and at times layered shapes on top to give depth.  This lively painting will keep the viewer discovering hidden delights!
