Alleppey is a painting created from a patchwork of images from my trip to India in 2017. During the holiday in Kerala I was lucky enough to take a country boat around the backwaters of Alleppey where the tropical landscape meets a quiet network of rivers. I wanted to capture the stunning array of giant leaves and palm trees and their reflections in the water.
Using a palette of five colours I decided to cast the painting with a pinkish hue, using a deep blue for the shadows and reflections.
Painted on a deep edged canvas, with neatly painted pink edges, ready to hang.
