About this work of Art
This striking hoopoe with his fan-shaped crown, has stumbled upon a whisper of emperor moths. He surveys them grandly while they dance in the moonlight.
This original painting is gouache on paper.
I learned how to paint with gouache by following online tutorials and found I really loved the medium. The fun, peppy colours and chalky finish of the paint appeal to my tactile sensibilities as a textile artist.
I enjoy the way that gouache can simplify artwork – my gouache paintings and many of my textile artworks have a similarly naïve feel to them. I found a freedom in the bright sunshine tones of the paint and I really like the upbeat character of these simple yet strong, eye-catching images.
