Where dreams come true and new art
A new painting which I’ve named Where dreams come true. Really enjoyed working on this which has been in the making for some months along with a number of other paintings all themed around water in one way or another. Now that I have a new art studio, thank you to Bob for building it, I’ve got the space to be messy and not put anything away 🙂
So this year I’m concentrating on painting in patterns and many translucent layers. I am a bit obsessed with water although not totally fixed on it as do enjoy trying to capture the tangle of wild flowers but I want to explore textures and abstract patterns that water and its many reflections create from the dapples above to the underwater world below.
The Deep Blue Ocean tryptic
The 3 Sea Sprays named the Deep Blue Ocean and my take on the beautiful powerful sea. Created by painting many layers of inks between layers of a non-toxic type resin on beechwood.
I’ve entered these into the Crickhowell Oriel Gallery Art Competition – not sure if they will be accepted yet but if they are they’ll be on view and for sale late May through to June in the Gallery.
Each Sea Spray is 25cm x 20cm – Hope you likex
Tropical close up
A close up of Tropical who as from Sunday 13th has a new home. Tropical is part of the little BIG garden collection. I loved painting this and have used impasto technique for the leaves and the flowers I used a watercolour ground to give them a very different effect and to top some of the flowers, I’ve added black lava and 23karat gold leaf.
Painted on a natural linen canvas using various techniques with acrylic, watercolours, iridescent inks, black lava and gold leaf. It’s quite a striking painting and sort of glows at the top when the light catches it. It’s 91.5cms x 91.5cms
