Really evocative and strangely peaceful. The texture is amazing. I get both a micro and macro sense from the second one; I could be looking at the ground near my feet or the coast from the air.
I love your art.
Ah, this makes me very happy, thank you. When I was first getting started with the painting after moving to London, I was trying to make definite representations of scale. Now I deliberately try to make them ambiguous.
The one of on the left is AWESOME.
Thank you! It's supposed to be an abstract blend of woodland textures (moss, bark & water).
i like them both, but the one on the right is my favorite. :)
It's more definite a representation than the other one. Also, thank you.
Nice work! I like them both, and think they add to each other when presented together.
I hadn't thought of this before you commented, but I rarely work on a single small canvas. They always come in pairs or groups. I can only work on larger canvases singularly.
Wow, you're amazingly talented. How did you create so many different textures?
I use molding paste and heavy acrylic gels to help create the textures, and I usually shape them either with my palette knife or a brush. In the case of the canvas on the right, I dropped water onto the molding paste while it was drying.
Also, thank you!
Can something be both calm, and...unrestful at the same time? Because if it's possible, these are. The colours are muted, not in-your-face and you don't have any screaming lines, but at the same time, they make me think of a much bigger scene, the atmosphere, maybe. I dunno. Please consider me a fan.
You make me think that perhaps I did go some way towards capturing the feel of the air now. It does make you all shivery and restless. Thank you.
Beautiful. Let me know when you get an etsy account.
Thank you. I will do that. The marketing strategy has yet to be decided upon. Probably I shall have to consult people who have a clue how to go about that (e.g. my flatmates).
Indeed. I have exactly the same confusion, except the other way round!
Thank you very much. I am much encouraged by the positivity of your response. ♥
PS, have you received the quince nectar yet. I mailed it early last month and I know there was Christmas and everything but they said 15 business days so really it should have got there by now...
These seem just right to me. x
Ah, that means a lot to me. Thank you.
The one on the right is very powerful. I do not know what your intention was but I 'see' something very definative and evocative to me within it.
The one on the left is beautiful but does not have the 'definative grab' of the other, possibly because it does not remind me of anything.
I love your work it always makes me think :) Thank you for sharing.
Yes, the one on the right was definitely intended as coastline and mud flats, while the other is a bit more of an abstract blend of woodland textures (moss, bark, water).
Thank you for taking time to tell me what you thought.
you have definitely captured norfolk there, to the point of making me a bit homesick! gorgeous.
I'm sorry to have made you homesick, but also glad that you feel it reminds you of home. I want to do a big one of the fens now. :-)
Amazing! They should be accompanied at all times by Vaughan Williams' Norfolk Rhapsody.
I'll remember that should the gallery showing in my head ever manifest in reality. :-)
