” I want to draw the attention of the viewer to the beauty of flowers, on a larger scale than normal Nature is truly inspiring – and the Creator is truly the greatest artist of all.” – Anni Angus
My name is Anni Angus. l’m usually a monochromatic artist who enjoys the technical side of drawing – that being pen and ink pointillism and graphite. But every alternate month or two I love to pick up my oil paints and paint again. I like to swing from one medium to another it challenges and teaches me. Life after all is a learning process.
When I paint though, I like to keep it simple. I like to keep a very minimalist choice of colours on my palette – that being mainly three colours, but never more than four. ln this case l get an over all softer effect when mixing then, and the colours seem to flow
into each other and the whole picture seems to “blend” together and come together almost effortlessly.

Nature is truly inspiring – and the Creator is truly the greatest artist of all.
I have called the one “Tranquillity”. By using only three colours I created various shades of green, grey and ochre. The shades of green grass, stormy clouds and sunlight. The tranquillity of sunlight shining through parting clouds after a rainy day.
The other one, “Awakening” was painted on a black background with four colours. The colours of a sunset and a sunrise, a brilliant beautiful soft light that bursts forth into a new day, giving every one hope.
