Painting description

‘Autumn in Kyoto' is a striking original hummingbird painting by British artist Sian Storey, and part of an ongoing series of paintings inspired by the beauty of Japan.

A long, rectangular canvas sized at 30 x 100 cm and 5 cm depth, Sian used acrylic and spray paint to create this peaceful and calming painting. The colours of golden yellow, blush pink and copper work harmoniously together to create a beautiful backdrop of flora, leaves and an autumnal sky for the birds in flight.

There are flashes of copper and gold spray paint that catch the light with a shimmering effect.

Look closely and you’ll also see origami paper all the way from Japan pasted onto the painting.

The painting is signed by the artist Sian Storey on the front and reverse, and will be a stunning addition to your art collection.

Feel inspired

Japan’s beauty is a constant source of inspiration for Sian. The title 'Autumn in Kyoto' refers to the rich colour of Japan's seasons, in this case the shimmering warm glow of autumn. The dreamy colours, particularly the metallic tones, have a soothing quality and will bring serenity to your home.

Sian is also inspired by the beauty and movement of hummingbirds, and this painting continues Sian's fascination with them.

How it was created

'Autumn in Kyoto' was painted in Sian Storey’s studio in leafy Hampshire during summer 2018. Sian paints in layers, giving the painting a sense of depth.  Using acrylics and spray paint, you'll see detailed, delicate brushwork and beautiful mists of spray paint. You’ll also see Japanese origami paper pasted onto the painting.
