There is something very spiritually uplifting about the radiance of yellow flowers, the energy with which the colour hits the back of your eye seems hard to capture. I love this quote from Winifred Nicolson about painting yellow flowers, one of my favourite painters, she is so inspiring about colour in particular.
My paintings at the top are ‘Votive Offering No.35’ and ‘Votive Offering No.38’, both paintings of wild yellow flowers which I completed recently. They are Marsh Marigold with Horsetail, and Flag Iris with Forget-me-not, growing at Birnie Loch near me here in Fife, last spring/early summer.
These two little posy paintings,size 20x20cm on paper, are with the Roger Billcliffe Gallery for their ‘Postcards 2020’ exhibition opening Friday 24th January.
