Sunlit Sakura

Regular price £900.00

Painting description

‘Sunlit Sakura’ is an original hummingbird painting by British artist Sian Storey.

A square canvas sized at 100x100cm and 5cm depth, Sian used acrylic and spray paint to create this beautiful and tranquil painting. The soothing colours of white and gold provide a backdrop to the vibrant colours of the hummingbirds in flight, and spring blossoms in bloom.

The gold spray paint catches the light with a shimmering effect.

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

The circular shape in ‘Sunlit Sakura' was loosely inspired by ‘Enso’, a Japanese word meaning circle, which is associated with zen and enlightenment.

Here, the circle symbolises the sunrise, a new dawn, and the cycle of the seasons and life itself.

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

How it was created

‘Sunlit Sakura’ was painted live in Basingstoke's 'That Gallery' in November 2018 and completed in Sian Storey’s studio in Hampshire Soon after. Using acrylics and spray paint, you'll see detailed, delicate brushwork and beautiful mists of spray paint.

Sian paints in layers, as seen in the intricate stencil technique of the background and rich acrylic paint of the hummingbirds and blossoms. The spray paint is used to diffuse edges and lines, creating a hazy, dreamy finish.
