Artist's Description

Fragile Blossoms by Lucinda Leveille  is a watercolour and oil paint on canvas piece, using thick textural elements for the petals of the cherry blossoms.

'Flowers are fragile and ephemeral .... Even if you meant to protect them with a surrounding fence from wind and rain, they would die without sunlight .... and a spindly fence has no power against a strong wind. " Gosho Aoyma.

The process for these watercolour on canvas pieces is something I have developed myself, beginning with the preparation of the canvas to receive the watercolour; heavy texture is added in this painting with many layers of watercolour, each layer must be 'fixed' before another is added, certainly worth the effort to achieve this wonderful depth of colour. I have finished the painting with oil paint and glazing, finally varnished to deepen the colour.
