The artwork is currently on show in my solo show IN FlIGHT at The Hyde Gallery in London.
The Flight of Salvador is the last painting in the series of gold panels from The Brazil Collection.
I carefully select the colour & positioning for the pieces, painting in pairs. Each bird is painted in oil to project from the grains of the birchwood. Each bird has their own character & I wanted the bird in this piece to be in flight. With resting vines of Brazillian flowers entwined & falling behind the bird.
The painting shows different painting techniques. I used acrylic to paint the botanical work & finished the stems of the flowers in 24ct gold leaf. There is a light acrylic wash on the birchwood, so that the grain shows through, contrasting with the vibrant oils of which the painted hummingbird.
A nature-inspired work. The birchwood panel is set on a 24ct gold-leafed wood panel. Creating not only a painting but a sculptured piece of art.
