Viridian Nude

Viridian Nude

Acrylic on canvas

915mm x 610mm

Created: 2019

Painted in tones of viridian green with touches of blue and purple.

My nude sits on the rocks watching the waves below.

Her shoulder and left side have kisses of a warm copper paint to represent the sun caressing and warming her skin.

As I normally paint in many layers, this canvas has many, many layers of paint to build up the texture of the figure, waves and rocks.

I want to encourage the viewer to gently run their hand over the canvas to feel all the bumps and ridges.

Will she jump in to enjoy the cool water or will she just sit and watch?

Black Crows

Black Crows

Acrylic on Stretched Canvas

610mm x 760mm

‘Black Crows’ is an intriguing image painted in a modern style. Yellow, black and purple. 

Painted in a contemporary manner, I was inspired to paint this piece after hearing the crows that are always calling each other in our neighborhood,

It is a little menacing, but intriguing.  I have used many layers of black yellows and ochres with hints of purple to represent the depths of the trees in the bush they reside in.  The crows rule the bush and protect their territory against intruders.

Child’s Play

Original artwork painted in Oil on heavy duty stretched canvas.

It measures 1015mm x 760mm.

‘Child’s Play’ is a bright, cheerful, colorful image painted in a modern contemporary style in all the colours of the rainbow. It was painted with the view to add colour to the home. 

In this large piece I painted geometric shapes to create a pleasant image and used every colour I could manage. Are they children’s building blocks? could be! It would particularly suit a children’s bedroom or the nursery but at the moment I currently have it in my own bedroom as I love this piece and the colours make me happy.
