"Researching still life by French painter Manet.
Lilac flowers seemed to be a favourite subject, treated in an impressionist manner.
My homage is a very stylised floral display with artist licence.
A variegated dark background with subtle tonal changes of colour
accentuated by intense white flowers.
Artists can and do use the artistic influences developed before their practice. It keeps art developing through investigation."
