The painting number 16 tells the story of a plant which is so rare in the Netherlands, that it is on the list of endangered plants.
The sawgrass is a grassland plant with fluffy blossoms, which shine bright in the sunlight. To show this fluffy structure, I painted the plant very loose. And to emphasize the nice white glow, I kept the background to mostly dark colors.
The colors actually reflect the plant’s natural colors, which are brown and green in various tints. Since the plant shows a great variation of those colors – for example throughout its growing phase – I used warm and cold colors.
In case you make use of Pinterest, I would appreciate if you would pin one of the images below. They are all optimized for Pinterest.
The painting is made with acrylics on stretched canvas (protected with varnish) and does not need a frame, since the sides have been painted as well.
