Monday…with Pink Canvas Beauty

October 13, 2014

Filed Under : Summer

Over the last few months I’ve been working on such a lovely project for the Australian based Canvas Beauty.
Canvas asked me to create 4 unique table compositions with various colour themes and, like their products, connect with nature.
It was a perfect project for me as its a joy to compose these pieces…
Over the next 3 Mondays I’ll be posting pictures of the process of how I put their images together, starting with today’s pink theme…
Part of the joy of my compositions comes directly from nature itself, so when these Japanese Anemone petals were scattered over the garden path it sort of got me started…
I was working with one of the Canvas oil burners and decided to include a hydrangea petal to highlight the water, but to reflect that beautiful thing when petals just fall into ornamental ponds…
I wanted to re-create or at least capture some of the prettiness of the anemones outside…
as well as the freshness of the flowers in the morning…
…I lit up the burner last of all and I was so pleased that the warm glow of the candle picked out the centres of the shasta daisies as well as the anemones…
One composition often informs another, and although the rose petals didn’t feature in this pink composition… I just couldn’t leave them out!
Canvas Beauty pride themselves on their products which are full of wonderful herbal extracts and unique essential oils harnessing natural power as well as a natural healing therapy.
