It is a bit of a departure for me in terms of colour and style. I have always loved artists whose work teeters between figurative and non-figurative....I have working on some Monet-esque paintings in the past months and weeks. the painting below is large, 180x150cm.
looking at new ways of working helps to strengthen my ideas and to give fresh insight into all the paintings I undertake. Last week I picked up a book of fabulous work by the Finnish photographer Sandra Kantanen Beautiful work around nature, filled with painterly interpretations of composition and colour.
