Steve Huyton is an English artist who has recently arrived from the UK to settle in South Australia.

In 2010 I visited the Keukenhof Gardens in Amsterdam which has over a million tulips on display and I was inspired by the beauty on offer. Flowers have always captivated me because of their texture, colour and form. I decided to focus on a close up viewpoint, filling the whole canvas with one flower. I've used multiple layers of paint to achieve the intense colours and depth, thereby giving the paintings a three dimensional quality. I have included water droplets in the composition because I love the way they interact with the fragility of the petal to give the flower a new dynamic.
