The Velvet Shawl I (Pledge)
Artist's Statement: Amber-Jayne Stirling said her paintings of women draped in cloth and colourful still life's of flowers and fruit have a distinctly feminine feel. A fascination with the beauty and sensuality of flowers and fruit has, for many years, inspired Stirling's paintings. It was the textures and delicacy of the forms, the luscious hues, dramatic contours and the allure of ripe, juicy flesh that inspired her latest works.
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 80 x 60 cms
