Five Petals

Five Petals, painted with palette knife in oil, 20 x 20cm

The corners of my school books were covered in doodles of 5 petaled flowers, The shape feels nice to draw, is pleasing and whimsical adding a touch of pretty to an otherwise plain lined note book. To my delight here I find her, dotted alongside my bush walk trail, Tea Tree: a five petalled symbol of grace and strength with power to treat wounds, the leaves crushed and inhaled to alleviate colds and coughs. The essential oil distilled from the leaves of the plant is prized the world over for it’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal power. Thankyou Tea Tree.

I paint ‘alla prima’ which means ‘at first attempt’ my paintings are usually completed within one session.
