About this artwork
Rustica II - original oil painting by Eve Sellars.
My art explores the colour and form of Australian native flora - in this painting, eucalyptus leaves, nuts and blossoms in a classical botanical composition. Thick layers of gorgeous professional oil paint were applied with a palette knife and brushes, in harmonious earthy tones.
This classically composed botanical painting was painted on gallery wrapped pure Belgian linen.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born into a family of musicians, authors, actors, photographers and painters, it was natural that life lead me here, poised at the canvas, brush in hand. I live entirely off-grid at my bushland home in rural Victoria with hubby, dogs and a gorgeously prolific vegetable garden.
I use art to express my immense - well, let's say obsessive - passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful and sensitive artworks. Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.
Like something similar in a different size or using different colours? I am really happy to discuss commission requests.
My paintings are treated with the greatest care throughout their life in my studio and home, or at exhibitions where they may temporarily hang. Your new artwork will be carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and sturdy cardboard.
