Blue Sky Anemone


Blue Sky Anemone

76 x 140 cm | Pigments on handmade Mitsumata Paper
A calligraphic brush painting on handmade Japanese Mitsumata paper. This piece features delicate Anemones with lush green leaves brushed against a clear Summer Sky.

Handmade Mitsumata paper, renowned for its quality, allows the brush strokes to flow while holding pigments in a tactile surface.

These flowers respond dynamically to light, inviting contemplation on the mysterious life of plants. This brush painting explores the properties of minerals, water, sunlight, and chlorophyll.

The pigments I have used are Cobalt Yellow (Aureolin), Cerulean Blue, Yellow Ochre Light, Cadmium Green, Titanium White, and Chrome Yellow Middle.

The Mitsumata paper is stretched and attached to a simple wooden batten with bookbinder's paste, facilitating effortless hanging. Should an alternative hanging method be preferred, the batten can be easily removed before purchase.
