What's your favourite colour?
When asked I used to always reply 'red' although now it depends on my mood, sometimes it could be emerald green, another cerulean blue. I know from how quickly I get through the crimson paint it is certainly a colour I paint with constantly. I also use loads of red papers. Japanese paper is beautifully intense.
My canvas may shout 'Summer', but Spring too has some beautiful reds.
It began like this..... lots of paper pieces and gesso. Very slowly I began adding paint.
Then a couple of little houses turned up.
Some celandines joined the foreground.
Some textured grasses and moulding paste.
two cottages became one and the poppies covered the foreground.
I need a title..
It hasn't come to me yet, if you have any thoughts drop me a comment.. ;)
finally finished, a combination of paper, acrylic paint, gold flakes and moulding paste on canvas.
