Fynbos Exuberance: Helichrysums

Title: Fynbos Exuberance: Helichrysums
Medium: Oil paint on stretched canvas
Size: 800 x 800mm
Year: 2021

As the time for my solo exhibition drew nearer, I found that I worked faster and simplified more. This was the beginning of my Fynbos Exuberance series. I found that I loved the simplified shapes and playful colours that happen when I painted more quickly.

I found these clusters of Helichrysums on one of my hikes on Table Mountain. Just had to paint them!!
