This is a commission...my brief being simply "turquoise squares & blobs" to hang in a bathroom.
Not really knowing how to interpret that (I'm sure everyone has their own idea of what squares and blobs could, or should, look like...!) I took my inspiration from Kandinsky's 'Circles'.
I really enjoyed playing around with the various shades of blue and turquoise. I found it a relaxing task, although it still required a surprising amount of thought to plan which hues to place where. I am very pleased with the finished product, hopefully my mother-in-law will agree!!!
Inspired by a photograph I took as the sun was setting across Southwold Common one January afternoon.
I painted from the same image, in watercolours, a few years ago. I love the natural purples and the reflection of the light on the water in the foreground and wanted to paint it again using acrylics....
