Inspired the by Monmouthshire & Brecon canal, which we are very lucky to live by. Acrylic and inks on a 1 meter square canvas
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.
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
Window of Breathing Colours Art Gallery in Balmain, NSW, Australia — showing Sunkissed on canvas and my Arty Tote Bags.
I’ve got 4 little garden Arty Tote Bags (41csms) and 2 larger ones (46cms) in blue which are taken from The Tube and Sunkissed and would make great beach bags.
Introducing Buttercup Hill who is waiting for more grasses, buttercups and dandelions to be painted at the top.
Buttercup Hill is a day for serenity and wishful thoughts as the buttercups sway in the breeze and summertime pollen floats in the air. Buttercup is 91cms x 91cms on canvas – mixed media and will be making her debut at the September 2015 art exhibition, Breathing Colours Gallery, Balmain
