This artwork is a tranquil, abstract landscape in gentle pastel colours, that evokes a feeling of serenity and comfort.
It is an acrylic painting on canvas, with a textured surface enriched by texture medium and collage elements.
I often work in a very intuitive way, where I feel "lead" to create a painting in a certain way that hasn't been planned out before, and this is a very good example of that. I started by quickly painting a background of light colours which I intended to then cover with something completely different - but something about what I had created really spoke to me and I was inspired to lead the painting off in a totally new direction. Being alive to the possibilities as you are painting and not being too fixed in your ideas can often result in something much more exciting than a pre-planned piece, and I love this way of working. For me it allows the sub-conscious to be involved in the painting process - something I value very much. The result is something in a much gentler, lighter colour palette than is usual for me, and a mood of calm that can add a feel good atmosphere to any interior.
The artwork is sold unframed. Acrylic paint and texture medium on cotton canvas. The painting is varnished with a UV filtering varnish that prevents fading.
