Morning sunlight filtering through the lush greenery whilst I walk amongst the wild summer flowers brings such calm and peace to these moments remembered. This painting takes inspiration from summer travels in the French countryside.
Responding to these natural influences the painting is developed with loose and expressive palette knife strokes, in mindful play between paint and canvas. Layers and texture create depth and vibrancy. I seek to capture the essence of being there amongst it all in that moment.
Created with Winsor & Newton professional oil paints on high quality stretched canvas, with softwood stretchers. Canvas size is 60 x 60 cm x 4.5 cm depth. The image is extended on the sides of the canvas creating a 3-D effect. The canvas is signed on both the front and the back, and there are 2 D-rings attached to each side of the softwood stretchers strung with strong cord so that this work is READY TO HANG to sit flush against the wall, with no need for any further framing, offering a contemporary finish to the artwork.
