|'Stripes' 40x60cms, oil|
This is the finished painting, varnished and ready for tomorrow. I'm pleased with how this turned out, although it started out as only an experiment and is based on a reference came from Wet Canvas's image library. I changed the background and colours just leaving the shape of the leaves. Unfortunately I don't remember who originally posted the photograph.
Myself and some artist friends will be exhibiting over the weekend at this beautiful 17th century villa.
The photo is actually of the rear of the villa, and is from where I sit in the station car park to sketch while waiting for my daughter's train. The front faces onto a busy road and I would risk getting run over, but the back entrance is lovely anyway!
I really like the frame on this painting of local fishing boats, strange how artwork looks so different in it's frame? I think I will post this to my mum for Christmas after the exhibition (She doesn't have a computer
or ever look at my blog, so it's still a secret!)
