I was guided by the textured marks I randomly put on the canvas to create this image. I like the subtlety of colours coming through the dark grey shadows.

This original painting will be for sale in the Dunfermline Art Club Exhibition, 26 June – 5 July 2017 in the Kingsgate.

Something a bit different.  My handprint out of acrylic paint, drawn over top with a black fineliner pen, creating shapes of trees and subtle faces.  I have enjoyed making these four images, I find them calming and intriguing.

Inspiration for this painting is from birch trees.  I made it into an abstract landscape.  If you tilt your head to the left and look at the image on it’s side, it represents the trunk of the birch tree with markings and the small trees represent branches.
