Hippeastrum and Eucalyptus.

This painting by Pieter Wagemans depicts a flourishing bouquet of Hippeastrum flowers and Eucalyptus plants, skillfully composed in a transparent vase. The vase is bursting with life, overflowing onto the canvas, but retains a sense of calm. This harmony is skillfully created by combining the rich red colour of the flowers and the icy green of the Eucalyptus leaves. You can almost feel the soft, velvety texture of the petals, created by Pieter’s delicate use of paint.

Pieter gives this subject matter a modern twist and finds a balance with light and shadow in order to produce a powerfully realistic depiction. This modern style is reinforced through the simple grey background, which enhances the beauty of the flowers and preserves their stillness.
