It was just a walk out into the garden. That’s how this started. Such beautiful flowers all around. Look at these! Such colours and forms. It’s those colours; yellow & purple.
Yellow and purple are opposites in the colour wheel and thus they are complimentary colours.
They compliment one another.
A real flower photographed and enjoyed. Nature pairing complimentary colours in proportions that work so very well.
A response in wax to that photograph and other photographs taken at the same time.
Another waxed Iris
The colours move into a wider palette. Abstraction dances out of the original inspiration.
Roses … are not always red!
The centre of a rose is begun, with the power of yellow oozing out. The purple holds that compliment. But yellow is stronger, more dominant, overpowering.
