Camellia Botanical Series
Newsome's vibrant botanical camellia specimen paintings have greatly enlarged flowers and backgrounds of intertwined foliage in natural settings. This interpretation of the background enables the portrail of the primary floral subject in a natural-organic setting. She creates a rhythm with the foliage that leads the eye through the painting and back to the central focus of the main blossom. With Newsome’s botanical paintings, she invites the viewer to stop, explore and appreciate the inherent complex order and amazing beauty of nature, which may otherwise be overlooked.
