My husband Thomas really liked my latest classical portrait (now renamed ‘Girl with apples’. He decided that she should come out from under the stairs and be in front of the stairs instead! So now it looks like she has just glided down the stairs…
The first painting of the year has been completed. I used my student son Rick as my study for this one. I am excited that I have begun the year with such vibrant colour!
I had the idea for this painting some time ago. It was only when I created a warm pink backdrop that I felt it worked. The yellow lamp light adds a nice point of interest.
On my easel right now. After many sketches and other oil works on this theme, I have now just completed this oil painting ‘Bristol – The Green City’ celebrating Bristol as the European Green Capital 2015. Am loving the relationship of the greens and Naples yellow hue. Am really happy with this result, it was such a joy to paint too! This piece will be in the Return to Bristol show in March 2015 at The Grant Bradley Gallery.
