White Rose and Freesia, Oil on Panel, 6 x 6 Inches
Oil on Panel 6 x 6 inches
This painting is on a hardboard panel - acid free and archival.
For a long time I’ve been interested in Chinese Gong-bi painting. Whilst this isn’t a Gong-bi painting, there are echoes of my interest in it in here.
Gong-bi painting emphasises the design, is often cropped and is traditionally characterised by a strong emphasis on line.
This painting is kind of a marriage - or an attempt at a marriage - between two traditions: the rounded form, light and shade of the European tradition and the emphasis on design of Gong-bi.
Although I’ve flirted with ideas like this many times in the past it’s always been in drawing, and often in line only.
For a long time now I’ve wanted to start exploring how I can get that beauty of design and simplicity into paintings. This is my first real attempt at it - I hope of many more.

I’ll need to allow some time for the painting to dry thoroughly before I send it to you. Usually, a couple of weeks will be enough.
