Oil on canvas
122 x 76 x 4 cm
After an awe inspiring trip to India I took a few month to absorb how I felt about a once in a lifetime trip. I’ve now begun to paint from my sketches, photos and memory of a wonderful day spent in the backwaters of Kochi in Kerala.
I wanted to convey the feeling of being in a dream as the experience was such a beautiful one so decided to paint in fantasy, dreamlike colours, flipping reality into an imagined paradise.
I’ve used used a limited palette and impressionistic brushstrokes to give a soft image of the slow glide down the river, water hyacinths carpeting the surface of the water, coconut palms overhead.
The painting is one of several I painted of India after my return. I took several months to absorb the impact of this wonderful trip before embarking on making work about it, hence the reference to a dream in the title, as by the time I began to make work about India it felt like a dream, and a lot of the information I used for the painting came from my memory.
Painted in oil on a Loxley Gold, deep edged canvas with sides neatly painted in Paynes Grey, ready to hang.
