Bougainville

Bougainville (c) Ayesha Gamiet 2017

This was a fun commission I completed for a client at the end of last year – a Christmas present for the client’s Greek wife. He asked me to paint bougainville, as these flowers grow abundantly in Greece. So I settled upon purple bougainville on a contrasting yellow background with a cheery orange patterned vase. I must have been craving the sunshine!
