Light study in Greys
A few works off to new homes this week.
Pastels added just enough detail to bring this rose to life.
Gorgeous way to spend an afternoon, in the garden surrounded by scent , flowers and bees.
A clever bouquet sent without water in the post, thank you the Tan family.
The flowers opened beautifully in water, but the shade changed from red to parchment over the days, gorgeous at every stage.
I did a quick pastel to catch a little of their beauty before it was too late.
An enjoyable day a while back with acrylics and Stephen Foster
I intend to play with this painting as I’d like the boats to be more abstract
This painting title represents how I felt painting it- a larger canvas meant more room to experiment and play.
Now it has a new home where I think it will give its new owner the feeling of a fresh chapter too.
Love the reflected and distorted light effect through the trees on the photo I took at Giverny.
I used lots of runs in acrylics and then oils , with splatters and impasto oil for the lily pads.
70 x79 slim box canvas
A reminder of days gone, hope it warms you up
I used a very rough textured background to paint this . Not 100% sure it is finished yet
We visited the Monet and Architecture exhibition in London which inspired this painting.
Out the back, on a beautiful day wonder the shade of an apple tree. Love plein air painting
The trees meeting over my local lane remind me of cathedral arches, with the light divided as by a mullioned window.
I really enjoyed splashing the acrylic paint on for this extremely loose painting.
Larger than usual at 60 x 75 cms and using very limited colours is has loads of life and a mystical feel.
