Recently I had decided to deviate from my habit of using only subtle colors in my paintings and dared to use vibrant bright colors instead. What better subject than the vibrantly colored leaves of the CROTON plant.
This is a plant which has a kaleidescope of bright colors like reds and pinks, oranges and purples and vibrant yellows, sometimes all colors on the same leaf. Stripes and spots are also characteristic of this plant which is even kept indoors to liven up a living room.
CROTON is an acrylic painting on canvas of size 9.5"x7.5".
