Premium collection is the artists selection of her best and favourite pieces.
In this original painting Sirpa wanted to really stick with the absolute purest form of primary tones. The subject matter really was secondary in this piece. The electric blue sky is to her the purest form of blue, the deep blue that you can see in New Zealand’s clear air when you look straight up to the highest point of the sky above. The pure magenta is the cleanest tone of red that she can imagine, it also somehow represents the ultimate girliest color, but not in a stereotypical “helpless female” way but in absolute powerful way. Powerful women are not afraid to wear hot pink. Adding the final primary color, golden yellow, artist’s favourite color, this painting stands out in it’s boldness.
