The Creative Palm Tree
Words on the art 'Creativity takes courage.' – Henri Matisse
Who doesn’t like to draw outside the lines?
And what creative doesn’t like to make pink palm trees?
I had a great time creating this piece. It came about as I was reflecting on past master artist Henri Matisse. A radical art influencer, the French painter Matisse (1869 to 1954) layered gouache-painted paper cutouts in his grand collage murals. His lively compositions juxtaposed varying shapes and colours, provoking new insight into the established genre of contemporary art.
Likewise in its courageous blend of media, my illustration of the palm tree set over layers of a multi-textured painting defies convention and gives way to a light, playfully fresh feeling.

Creating This Artwork
This piece started out as a black and white illustration of a palm tree.
Once complete, I set the illustration against an abstract acrylic painting with shades of pinks. The contrast of white and pink allow the shapes to burst with energy!
