MICHAEL LYONS

Olive 































Fragment from a beautiful olive tree... artfully composed.
The olives are painted much larger than life to show their subtle speckled texture.
The branch is especially delicate and beautifully painted.
Michael learned a lot about colour and the subtleties of mixing greens with this painting... the perennial challenge of the botanical painter.
































Here it is before the branch and the olives were added... like an elegant green bird...
