New Paintings & New Energy for Hinkler Drive

Renovating and moving into your new home often means that you want your environment to look and feel better than it ever has.  In the case of my recent client, this meant the strategic use of colour in a variety of rooms to create the ambiance and energy both her and her family needed.  Two unique paintings were created for this commission.

My client works from a home office, and one of the key decisions to hang art in her office was to create a space where she felt motivated to be in.  Because her office was part of the home, and frequently seen by the family and visitors, the colours and image created in the painting also needed to reflect the happy, calm, joyous energy the family have.

Additionally, her brand colours were to be represented in her new painting as well.

This was a fabulous artwork to create.  As a beach lover myself, it was exciting to discover during our initial Artistic Consultation that she too found the beach to be her calm and ‘happy place’.  Using a combination of washes and pours we created the illusion of a breaking wave.  Having sky in the background created an aspect of depth which was critical for my client.

The second of the paintings to be created was for the master bedroom.  There was an existing piece that my client absolutely loved, so our mission was to create a new artwork that worked together with the painting she already had.

The colour tones were deeper blues that the rest of the house, wanting not only a calm sophistication, but a feminine and sensual energy.  The use of silvers ensured the connection with the existing piece and also enhanced the serenity of the image.  Red was used to bring an aspect of passionate energy, white to add the clean purity.

To add more dimension to this painting we used mixed media to create strong texture in the branches of the cherry blossom tree.  We used pallet knife techniques to create the petals & flowers, intentionally wanting a raw finish to offset the softness of the image.  The balance of energies was essential for the bedroom environment, and this was achieved.

The perfect yin/yang creation.

Thank you to Hinkler Road for the opportunity to create two paintings for your new home and office.  A pleasure to be part of your new environment.
