ELIZABETH KIDD

Anthurium



Elizabeth's most recent painting... bright red Anthuriums and their heart-shaped leaf provided her with many challenges. All the complicated hills and valleys combined with a shiny surface create a maze of colour, shadow and highlights. 

The little flower at the bottom is particularly well navigated and interesting, with its mix of green into red and the delicate highlights over the ridges. Contrasting colours make for a vivid and energetic composition.
