This year I have returned to a favourite theme of mine - boat reflections. Inspired by working boats in harbours and shores, I have worked up a number of paintings homing in on the reflected image of the source subject. To add ‘grist’ to the process I have chosen acrylic paint - a relatively new medium to me with many different properties to oils so the whole experience of painting had to be re-considered and examined in a way which made the adventure fresh and exciting.
Fruit and veg!
Continuing my adventure with acrylic paint I proceeded to work on a batch of small fruit, veg and flower still life paintings which I then mounted on highly coloured dual backgrounds of various orientation set into small deep box frames. The result - a veritable market stall of lush produce, bright and fresh and looking ready to eat!
