Cardiocrinum giganteum

Robert is a world renowned award winning artist who's interest in botanical subjects can be experienced firsthand through the stunning quality, accuracy and sensitivity of his work. 

 

His use of colour, dynamic form, meticulous detail, and of course his Hallmark, capturing the impact of light highlights a passion for communicating the visually complex.    

He is slowly expanding his portfolio with a growing enthusiasm to seek out and record in his own unique way natures seemingly endless abundance of diverse and complex plant forms.

His watercolours bear witness to a creative process that is strongly grounded in painterly qualities that are always in a state of constant flux to meet the demands and challenge of his botanical subjects.

 

“A painting can only ever be an approximation of what we visually perceive, an arrangement of colour relationships that create an illusion of reality on a flat substrate.” Robert McNeill
