Fire Birds is an original oil painting by Sophie Harden. A bright and vibrant painting of two majestic flamingos on a soft turquoise green, tropical background. Using large brushstrokes Sophie creates a soft touch to the canvas, within the contrast of such strong colours.
Sophie’s subjects hail from her passion and love for animals, country pursuits and travel. With travel in her blood each trip is evolved around the animals she discovers with a regular trips to Africa to inspire her work. This piece was inspired by a trip to the Kenyan lake Nakuru.
Her contemporary and fluid technique allows movement to flood the painting, from the explosive energy and grace of horses to the small details that capture a moment in time. Often using a contrast of white oil on bright background colours, Sophie works to accentuate the adaptation of light, making the viewer perceive a 3D object from often just small marks and brushstrokes.
