Helliconia, by Osman Mia
16x16 inches, acrylic on canvas
Painted at the Lake Gardens in Kuala Lumpur, where there were impressive helliconias around.
This was my first ever tryist with acrylics. I realised then the potential of acrylics in producing blends of watercolour-like and oil-like textures in a single painting, which has become my signature style.
