Text & Visual Weight - Orchid #1


Orchid #1
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
10 by 12 inches, 25.5 by 30.6 cm

I wanted to reproduce the glowing yellow orange petals of the orchid. I put my last name in the upper left corner to give more visual weight to that area and balance my painting. Text adds visual weight to an area of a painting.

Movement & Repetition - Orange Lily

Orange Lily
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
8 by 10 inches, 20.4 by 25.5 cm
Original Painting Sold; Available as Fine Art Prints

[Click on title of this post to go to my FAA internet shop.]

In this painting, I wanted to emphasize the swirling movement of the petals and flowers. The flower is seen close up and this adds drama and intimacy to the painting. There is also repetition, i.e. petals, leaves and stamens. Repetition will also add movement and animation to a painting even though no image is moving.
