Love Light, Love Colour

 

Yes I'm still at it. To live is to paint for me and if I don't I get grumpy! I'm embracing colour and my love of flowers, fabrics and china. Exploring colour relationships and interlocking shapes and tones is a lifetime lesson and can be a struggle too.

These two oils survived the struggle, I'm happy to say.

Freeing Up With the iPad.





Reflections, River Stour
This became . . 
After watching David Hockney on his iPad I was excited to get one and paint with my finger! I discovered to my delight that I could be very free and loose with it. As I live near the river Stour I took my iPad down there one afternoon in this lovely weather we've been having to try it out. I took photos and did some quick painting.
....this.
This came from...
this.

Now what I need to do now is translate the technique to oils.
