Anni Angus – Oil painting

” 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

ARTIST BIO

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.

For the summer colours exhibition, I chose to do two big floral works in oil of my favourite flower – peonies. I love the flowing movement that peonies seem to have, their intricate petals and the “delicateness” of it, I also 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.
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.

We are truly blessed to live here in the Western Cape, one of the most beautiful in the
world!

ARTIST BIO:


I focus on monochromatic artwork in various media, but right now my passion is with graphite and pen and ink, and the technical side of drawing.

The black and white of pen and ink on white paper, and the state of this medium being totally ‘inflexible’ compared to various other media and rather unforgivable with its permanent mark, challenges and fascinates me.

My pen and ink collection is created solely by using mainly pointillism, or stippling. There are no lines. It takes an incredibly long time to do and as a pen and ink artist one needs a great deal of stamina and patience – but the final outcome is to a tremendous degree personal and extremely rewarding.

In this regard I hope my artwork can draw the viewer in both ways, appreciating the work and effort up close, and enjoying it from afar. At present I am attempting something totally new, and rather unheard of – pointillism on canvas.

My tree collection:

My tree collection is something unique. Trees are used to represent life and growth in mythologies, legend and novels. They are considered representative of wisdom, strength, patience and life. It’s amazing how
every single tree is solitary in type or characteristics , each with its own quality and beauty – no two trees are the same. I focus on the very old, gnarled and interesting looking trees for inspiration – to me they are
nature’s true works of art.
