About - Fine Art Print Vermilion

This print is a professional reproduction of the original painting Vermilion from the Colour Bloom gallery wall original collection (originals yet to be released).

For this collection, I had two sources of inspiration. First was the history of some unique and interesting colours, like Vermilion. I am always drawn to Vermilion - for its unique name and vivid red-orange hue. The name Vermilion derives from the Latin vermiculus which translates to “a little worm,” which is a cochineal insect from which crimson dyes were obtained. My second source of inspiration was my front garden - the magenta and pinks of these cosmos were the perfect pair with a Vermilion background.
