Thickly Layered Flower Paintings Literally Pop Off Artist’s Canvas

Artist Jane Ironside (of IronsideImpastos) paints flowers that literally pop off the page. Utilizing a distinct impasto style involving layers that impressively resemble flower petals, the creative is able to depict a wide range of blossoms. Ironside does so using a simple palette brush to mix both light and dark colors, which also allows her to play with dimension. She explains that her technique is “just like icing cupcakes!”

While your typical flower paintings often incorporate touches of softness and delicacy, Ironside's works instead focus on vibrancy and texture. This makes each of her pieces one-of-a-kind, especially when you consider the amount of detail that goes into each and every petal. To see the painter's work for yourself, you can visit her flower-filled Etsy shop.
