Bold Colours For Your Walls

Get ready for my paintings to explore some fun and bold colours over the coming months as I embrace spring, summer and sunshine.

To be honest, I think living in Queensland is rubbing off on me.  I grew up in Melbourne where the uniform de jour is black on black.  But with sunny days on repeat and living by my own little patch of paradise I can’t help but be influenced by the colours around me and its spilling into my palate and artwork.

And with the sense of spring in the air, it makes sense for that colour to blossom in a new series of floral pieces.  I’ve been asking my followers on Facebook and Instagram about their favourite blooms and I’m using their suggestions to influence my paintings.

This is the first few paintings of a new series around the Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia).

Leah

Australian Artist, painting with Gouache and Oil Pastel on Paper. Lover of lines, curves, colour and texture.

Born and bred in Melbourne, Australia, I've spent most of my adult life travelling, time living in Sweden and Adelaide and have settled in Brisbane with my little family.

I'm creative by nature and find inspiration in many different corners of this world, some just under my nose, others a life time away. I blog because I love to share what I discover, and to inspire myself.

You'll find my blogging about my paintings and artwork on:
