Hello. Its been a while. I've been busy in the studio these past few weeks preparing some new work.
I thought I'd share some with you.
This one is a triptych variation of the Old Tulip. I love this red. Its one of my favourite colours. Colours affect my mood and this particular blend of red always lifts my spirits.
And here is a little adventure into Cubism. These are 'paintlets' as I call them. When I have a commission, I paint out ideas in miniature (well, about 20 cm x 20 cm) and these two are hot off the easel.
Both are after the style of the Cubist masters: Picasso and Braque. What do you think? They are going to be on big canvases when completed.
I adore painting huge canvases, there is something very liberating about the whole process. It must be the sense of freedom you have with big brush strokes. I can recommend it to anyone - fabulous for clearing the cobwebs.
I am really looking forward to working on these.........
I have a passion for painting which I have been able to develop these past few years when I have finally become old enough and wise enough to stop doing what I was told and start doing what I truly wanted to do. I heartily recommend it.
