Zorn Summer (diptych)

Description : I have painted this set of two paintings using the Zorn palette - a gorgeous mix of yellow ochre (sand colour), red, black and white. Its beauty lies in its simplicity and purity.

This palette was devised by artist Anders Zorn, and it is very popular among portrait artists. I have used it today to depict gum leaves in the Australian climate. I have also applied paint with a light hand - creating a certain translucence to the scene. From afar, one might be forgiven for believing this is painted in water colour. However, up close, brush strokes are clearly visible.

These paintings look best when placed half an inch apart. They are painted as wrap around, so the silhouette of the leaves curves around every edge of the canvas.

These paintings would also look fantastic placed upside down - there is no sense of gravity in this artwork as the leaves appear to float. The wire at the back can be easily moved with a screwdriver. I have deliberately left the front of the paintings unsigned so you can arrange them however you like.

You could also separate the paintings entirely - they certainly 'stand alone'. It's entirely up to you and your own sense of creativity. If hung as single artworks, framing would look incredible against these colours, and can be arranged for an additional cost.

I am a prolific artist working full time from my studio in central Victoria, with much of my art being held in private collections around Australia, as well as exhibiting in local galleries, restaurants, and at the Victorian Artists Society in Melbourne.

All of my paintings are packed with the greatest care and these paintings will be delivered using Australia Post.

ZORN SUMMER- original oil paintings by EVE SELLARS - a diptych with va-voom, energy and peace all combined into a pretty little package.

I was born into a highly creative family where live music, book signings and art exhibitions seemed to be a normal part of a child’s everyday life and upbringing. It was only natural that I eventually pick up the palette knife and put pigment to canvas. Today, I live entirely off-grid in a quirky house and garden, with my hubby and two dogs, on rambling acreage of bush, dust and stone. My days are spent at my art studio among gum trees, kookaburras, wallabies, and koalas (and the odd snake!).

You will rarely see me paint a landscape in the traditional sense. Instead, I prefer to get up close and personal with my subject, study its form and colour, its character and its flaws, and translate this impression into something new: cropped, colourful, suggestive, and alive.

So please, sit back, browse through my portfolio, and maybe one of my paintings will find its new home.
