An original painting of pale Alstromeria lilies on a bright orange background.
The flower petals bear the variety’s characteristic stripes. The soft green accents in the petals and the dark green leaves are complemented by the strong orange background, giving vibrancy and impact even in a small picture. The soft brushstroke on the petals allow the texture of the canvas and the orange underpainting to show through, giving a glow to the flowers.
The flowers are commonly known as Peruvian lilies or lily of the Incas, and they have come to stand for friendship and devotion.
The name ‘Alstromeria’ comes from Swedish botanist Baron Von Alstroemer, who brought them from South America to Europe in the late 18th century.
The size is 20 x 20cm, painted on stretched canvas. The piece will be sent with the canvas still on the stretcher, ready for display.
Painted with acrylic paints, which deliver beautiful vibrant colours and give a durable finish.
The bright orange of the background extends around all sides of the painting, and the leaves and flowers curl around the edges. Because it is finished in this way, there is no need to frame it (unless you want to!) and it can be displayed as-is.
This is a small work and could just as easily be displayed propped up on a mantelpiece or desk.
