Painting description

‘Kyoto Skies’ is an original hummingbird painting by emerging British artist Sian Storey, and part of an ongoing series of paintings inspired by the beauty of Japan.

A rectangular canvas sized at 30x100cm and 5cm depth, Sian used acrylic and spray paint to create this vibrant and beautiful painting. The harmonious colours of seafoam green and blue provide a backdrop to the vivid colours of the hummingbirds in flight, and hot pink blossoms in bloom.

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

Look closely and you’ll also see origami paper 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 ‘Kyoto Skies’ refers to the beautifully clear crisp blues of springtime in Japan that create a backdrop to the beauty of the Sakura season as well as the many tranquil gardens there.

Sian is also inspired by the beauty and movement of hummingbirds.

How it was created

‘Kyoto Skies’ was painted in Sian Storey’s studio in leafy Hampshire in 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.

This painting, your walls

'Kyoto Skies’ will bring vibrancy to any living space or bedroom thanks to its pinks and soothing copper spray paint.

Due to the unique long, thin shape, this painting is well suited to a side wall, but works equally well hanging above a sofa or bed. Expect it to be a talking point in your home and a painting you’ll keep forever.

This painting comes ready to hang - you just to put need a pair of strong nails in your wall.
