Palms and Palmettos Close Views
I really have enjoyed this series, working with Raffis Palms and native palmettos on my wooded hammock land in close views. I enjoy treating the work almost as an abstract and selecting out small areas between the palm leaves to fill in with vibrant color, using mostly watercolor crayon in washes and then oil pastels with some colored pencils... building up layers to get the intensity of color that I love.
The details in these original pieces are very time consuming and take many hours to complete. I am never satisfied until the artwork seems to pop with the right combination of color and light. All of these Original works have been sold but are available as pigmented ink archival Giclees in a variety of sizes. Please see the special folder I have set up for pricing, matting and framing info. I can custom print for you in a variety of sizes and I do custom framing of my work as well.
