Begonia's in full bloom #1
oil on canvas, 9.5" x 12"
painted on location in Apeldoorn - Sat 11 August 2012
This series of paintings, (four in total), was made at the art festival, Kunst in de Parken, in Apeldoorn, 10 - 12 August. Not my usual subject matter, however these flowers were crying out for attention, and thus inspired me to set up and make these paintings. Rather than paint the whole garden display, I decided to zoom in, as I found the abstract value of the resulting composition more interesting.
