I started this painting on the 1st of June, 2008 and finished it on the 23rd of June, 2008. It is an oil painting which measures 100cm x 70cm. This is the fourth in a series of paintings of the crinum bulbispermum. In this painting the first colouring, after an initial rough pencil sketch on the canvas, is done with acrylic paint. This is a technique I have developed which helps the final oil paint to have an even stronger and deeper effect. The oil paint is undiluted and is applied to the canvas using a small brush with many, many brush strokes. In this way the final result is that it is possibile to really see the flowing movements of the flower. This painting was shown in an art gallery in Leipzig in Germany, where a little girl said to her mother, “ mummy but this flower is still blossoming”.
