Poetry under the Leaves

Poetry under the Leaves

Vibrant hues of parakeet green, magenta pink, phthalo turquoise, violet and ice blue mix to create a vibrant celebration of colour against a background of soft grey.


This painting is inspired by the tropical hot houses at Kew Gardens, London. The fresh, vibrant colours and free, joyous paint-strokes capture the beauty and energy of the plants the hot houses contain. This painting is part of a series which explores the materiality of paint, its properties, movement and the ways colours combine. This series is also an exploration of colour. It aims to explore and exploit the mood-altering properties of colour, using them to enhance people’s emotional state, sense of well-being and atmosphere within a space through careful choice and balancing of colours and simple shapes.
