I often paint Helichrysum Italicum in my artworks. I just love the shape of these interesting plants. They have these long stems and simple, striking flower heads. Helichrysums are part of the daisy family. It grows on dry, rocky, or sandy ground in fynbos rich areas around the Cape.
In this painting, I used very loose brush strokes to create an abstract, moving effect to bring tribute to these lovely fynbos plants.
