Did the final pulling together of this painting today. I decided yesterday that I really liked the movement of George's coat, and wanted to capture this in the landscape as well. I've just received a lovely response from the lady who commissioned the painting. I've used some strong contrasting colours to draw the eye to different parts of the painting, hopefully taking the eye through the composition.
I must finish my lioness, I'm also very excited about a new project. I've recently joined a group of Kingston artists called Kingston Artists Open Studio (KAOS). We are planning to exhibition twice a year in the centre of Kingston. As well as this we are opening up our studios to the public in the Summer. It's a great chance to get to meet the artists and get an insight to how our paintings happen. I'm waiting for our website to be completed, then I will post a link and give more information on the dates of the exhibition and Open studio event, I'm sooo excited!
