Summer At Last

Oil on Canvas

This painting was sheer joy to create. 

We had an extremely long winter last year, followed by a wet spring, so it was whilst getting out during one of the first brighter days that I came across this view. I was utterly inspired and could not wait to start. Most of it was painted using a palette knife, working with shapes to create the looseness and expression that is so rewarding. The colours are bright but there is plenty of balance within all that busyness ... a challenging but fascinating learning curve. I am hoping to add more vibrant pieces to my collection. Friends of ours are now enjoying it in their home.
