Mixing ideas …

I was lucky enough to have the luxury of painting in the garden for what seemed like several hours today. I can’t believe how long this painting took me, it looks quite simple really:

In this painting, I have tried to use a variety of techniques, from using salt in the sky to using both paper and white oil pastel to highlight different areas. I’m not totally convinced about the orange lines within the green but hopefully they will grow on me.

  1. I like the way you are taking risks with colour. It is something that I often resist, but it can break down a barrier or two! So, the orange lines are the start of something! I also like your new header image.

    • Hi, many thanks for your comments. Experimenting with colour is certainly hit & miss but when it works, it works well! At the moment it’s more luck than judgement that gets it to work, it’s a fun learning curve though 🙂
