This piece is based on a photo of a carnation I took about a year ago, and at the time I had played around with the colours and ended up with a beautiful purple carnation photo. When I was looking through all the photos of flowers I want to paint but haven’t yet, the purple carnation jumped out at me and I realised it was the perfect piece to paint for Art for Epilepsy! The flower’s complexity and beauty almost makes it look like a human brain, and is fitting given that, like many things in nature, epilepsy is still not fully understood.
