In this painting I have tried to capture the delicacy of the Nasturtiums in a quiet and sensitive manner. I feel that in this world, our senses are continually being bombarded by ever brighter and louder stimulus; only those who shout the loudest are heard! As a result, we risk becoming numb to simple beauty. For me, still life painting allows me time to contemplate this beauty. The challenge is to render it with elegance and honesty. To this end each aspect of the painting process is deliberate and considered. My aim with this painting was to give the viewer a moments respite from the 'noise' of our everyday lives.
