This was an interesting painting to complete as I wanted to keep a slightly impresssionistic feel to the work but also wanted to work up the detail on the two figures, particularly the lemon yellow dress. If I had detailed the background too much I think that a) it would take attention away from the couple in the foreground and b) the work would become too tight and ‘chocolate box’ in appearance. I am happy with the finished painting.
Next week I begin a series of paintings using photos I took recently of one of my favourite models in a new setting. I am hugely excited about this and can’t wait to get started. Keep a check on the Blog for updates. I am looking forward to getting back to interiors again.
Great White Art gallery in Bristol (www.greatwhiteart.com) just completed a two week exhibition on Pop Art and several of my Line Art acrylic paintings were featured. If you are in Bristol do drop by and have a look. They are a sister gallery of Clifton Fine Art gallery three doors up on Perry Road (BS1 5BG).
