Just before I started creating visual art as a hobby in 2012, I visited Japan during Spring blossom season. I was absolutely in love with the gardens on display and the contrasts of dark shadowing trunks and vibrant soft flowers. I created this piece with that season in mind. The mixes of pink have a mild peach colour at the base to lift the whiter pinks and provide a vivid effect.
I used a specific high quality canvas with environmentally sustainable pine backing. This canvas allows me to create more realistic and detailed charcoal art pieces. My unique process of applying charcoal to canvas to create photorealistic art is done through the use of various paint and makeup brushes cut to shape. I seal all pieces with charcoal fixative and acrylic fixative. Over 200 of my artworks have been safely shipped worldwide; with insurance and tracker included.
