'Pink Clematis (Liberation)', Watercolour, 32cm X 25cm.
This is another of my favourites. The clematis was named Liberation by its growers in Guernsey to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Jersey and Guernsey. It is not an easy flower to paint as the petals are covered in tiny fuschia pink veins on very pale pink petals. The leaves are very unusually crinkly and glossy. The background was painted dark at the bottom with a splash of light to represent the dark days of repression and the light of freedom and peace. This painting was featured in Leisure Painter.
This painting is for sale.
