Days Float Through My Eyes
Oil on canvas, unframed
90 x 60 cm
I love to explore the woods around my home county ( Norfolk) and I am embarking on several works on the subject using a limited palette which includes my two favourite colours, phthalocyanine turquoise and cobalt violet light.
This oil painting on canvas has captured a recurring theme of pathways through the trees, overgrown, grassy, a thickly carpeted forest floor layered with fallen ferns in rusts and reds. I have worked from a ground of rich vermillion which carries through the trunks and boughs up into the canopy in this painting and just touches the sky with a blush of pink.
A shadow of a figure exploring the landscape lays in the foreground while a lone Kite circles above.
Painted on a standard canvas with neatly painted edges, unframed but ready to hang.
