Pretty in Pink Vase

By artist: Claire Manchanda

Acrylic on canvas, 20 x 25cm

I painted this floral arrangement at the same time as painting a larger piece, both with a bright and tropical feel, using palm leaves and bright daisies. I wanted this piece to feel ‘fun’ and thought the pink glass vase suits the feeling of the painting. I have used thick paint and intentionally placed highlights and shadows dramatically near each other for effect of bright sunlight so you can feel the sunny day.

About the artist.

I’m a Brisbane still life painter with a focus on florals. I paint predominantly in acrylics, as well as some watercolour painting. I explore light and shadows in my painting with an emphasis on value and tone. I work from life and from photographs. I have been painting for many years but have had a daily practice for one year. I have recently been going through cancer treatment and while it has been horrible it has allowed me to give time to my art. Another silver lining was all the love and support I received, partly in the form of flowers. I began painting them and my love for painting flowers arose! I’ve spent plenty of hours in the art room painting alongside my creative mum who taught me how to paint. I am passionate about painting as a profession.
