Original Oil on Canvas Artwork Falling Rose
Inspired by Sando Botticelli's Birth of Venus painting and historic Italian Renaissance grottoes.
Falling Rose - If you look at Birth of Venus, you will see in the background roses blowing in the wind, on a pale blue sky and green ocean. “Falling Rose” is my own take on this; I stained the linen background transparent blue, so the linen fibres can still be seen – linen is the canvas of choice that would have been used in the early paintings. The rose is painted brightly to bring a modern twist, but I have used gold leaf to mimic the very tiny yellow details in the roses painted by Botticelli.
