Intriguing Archways Hand Embellished Giclee

Sunlight cascades across the tops of the purple Pride of Maderia in the background and the Calla Lilies come alive when the pure White highlights are painted. Then the Sunflowers are accentuated with various combinations of Cadmium Yellow Medium + Hansa Lemon Yellow and Cadmium Yellow Medium + Cadmium Orange. The Alkyd Oil Paint is applied thickly giving the blossoms lots of texture.

After highlighting the bubbling water in the courtyard fountain I repaint all of the flowers in the lower left corner. To enlarge any of these pictures just click on the image.

Our collector asked me to add some blue blossoms in the vine over the archway. So let’s make it into a Thunbergia Vine with rich blueish purple flowers. Ultramarine Blue + a touch of Dioxazine Purple + White is used to make the petal color. You can also see the labeling of the Limited Original along the top edge.

Nasturtiums nestle under the large, split leaves of the Philodendron, I sign the piece in the lower right corner and we’re done. We’ll wait a few days for these to dry and they’ll be off to the gallery for our collector to have framed. Thank you for following along today. Hugs, Mikki Senkarik
