Japanese Camellia Oil Painting | Original Impressionist Floral Pink

$800.00

The original Japanese Camellia Oil Painting is inspired by one of the many beautiful flowers we find across our great planet.I love when still life paintings are placed against a very dark background, and I wanted to imitate that effect with this piece. By contrasting the dark background and foliage with the brilliantly bright pick Japanese Camellias, it simply begs to have the flowers jump of the board. I am also really happy with the variety and texture found within the pink flowers. They really help to make this original Japanese Camellia oil painting, one of my favorites.

Painting flowers is one of the most relaxing and rewarding creative endeavors that I encourage all to explore. These, often ignored, subtle little beauties hold so much color, warmth, and variation it is astounding we don’t all get lost in their gaze on a daily basis. That very fact was the inspiration behind this piece. Up here in blizzard country, NEPA, we can go 9 months without a sunny day in sight. That, or it’s just to cold to venture into the wild. So I painted these Japanese Camellias, to help bring some life back into those grey days. Perhaps they can bring a little light into your life as well, on those especially troubling days…we all need it.

The Japanese Camellia Oil Painting was created by artist and illustrator Andrew Gaia. In addition, he painted it in an impressionist style, utilizing the Alla Prima technique. Meaning, painted all at once, to trap in the ever changing varieties of pinks and red that can emerge when combining layers of paint. Also, Andrew utilizes the wet on wet technique, balancing thick over thin layers of paint. So, the result is a multi-layered impressionist piece that perfectly captures the depth of color and light found throughout the foliage and flower petals.
