Chinese Lantern (1)

Painting of a Chinese Lantern in a small size.

For a long time, I wanted to paint Chinese Lantern plants, or actually the part of the fruit that is enclosed in the petals. In the course of time, the petals decay, creating the familiar and beautiful filigree lampion, with the small orange-colored berry in the middle.

However, I would go crazy when trying to paint such filigree structures, and I am not a fan of realistic or photo-realistic paintings anyway, so I chose this approach.

I have made a total of 3 paintings, all in different sizes. This here is the smallest artwork, with only 5.9 x 5.9 in (15 x 15 cm). I add a small wooden easel to it, because it looks so nice on its own easel!
