Red painting

On Friday I put the finishing touches to this painting – maybe more could be done, but I wanted to have it finished. It went off to its new home with my daughter on Sunday. Some time ago I sold a painting (see A nice surprise) which had been occupying a space on her wall. Very graciously she let me take the painting away, but I promised I would eventually replace it. It had to be something that worked with another painting of mine she has, and this one started to look as though it would work as it developed. It was inspired by a snippet of a plant form, but now to me feels like something from under the ocean, maybe storm clouds, a volcano or something from another planet … open to interpretation.

It is oil on canvas, 60 x 60 cm.

I draw, I paint, I am a printmaker. Always searching for the interesting detail in the world around me.

    1. Thanks Rosie – it always seems to happen, the painting takes on a life of its own, and I am happy to follow where it leads. I have learnt (and its taken a while) that I get results I am happiest with if I can avoid having any preconceived idea of the final outcome.


  1. For me I almost expect to find a lovely tropical fish wandering through those beautiful velvet like waving sea fronds Anna 🙂
    I imagine your daughter will be thrilled with it to fill that space 😉
