The glorious deep teals, pinks and greens of these paintings of fruits, seed pods and leaves have been layered up and offset against silvery greens and deep olives.
Each work has a lush and tropical feel, suggesting summer abundance and colour.

ABOUT WENDI WELLER
Warwickshire artist, Wendi, is passionate about colour and this translates into large, semi-abstract, bold floral paintings as well as still life work.
Working in acrylic, oil and mixed media - either on canvas, paper or board - she aims to create fresh, bright, fluid lines. She uses mark-making and texture to convey the shapes and vibrancy of flowers and vegetation in her own garden, working from her eco studio which backs onto countryside.
What starts out as a vision, soon evolves into an abstract concept of the shape and contours relating to the colour and form.
“I begin my paintings with washes of colour, then build up layers, always retaining some of the sweeping background brush marks and colours in the finished painting.
“These paintings are inspired by my garden and some are named after strong Shakespearean women - independent and intelligent characters who are capable of overcoming obstacles and challenges in their lives. I feel my plants face similar challenges, with the threat of global warming and seasonal hurdles of their own.”
