What's happened to the weather? It's raining and windy and my gas was switched of all day yesterday so it was cold too! This little sketch popped into my sketchbook from my windy head.
I finished this painting on canvas above a few days ago, it's called 'Safe Harbour' and soon after finished the other painting (with the bird flying a kite) too.
I didn't have a name for it until the end and I decided upon 'Summer Breeze'. That was a day when the sun was still shining but the wind was beginning to stir. Summer Breeze sounds quite soothing doesn't it and I quite like the song of the same name. :) That guitar intro takes me back to being 13 before teenage angst really set in!
Windy and rainy it might be but my latest painting is filled with a peaceful setting of pattern and colour.
I like textures and the effects of different painting techniques and I'm trying to balance randomness with pattern. Not an easy task when I'm a bit of a neat freak with a love of the randomness of nature! What do you think, more neatness, or more random?
Happy weekend everyone!xx
