Sheep caught in the wintery snow. I love watching sheep and how they all follow each other. I felt sorry for these guys caught in the snow, it was a cold wintery day which always makes me want to get cosy.
I added light layers of paint on top with added snow to this painterly winter scene, finishing with a warm hue, just to take the edge off that cold!
Spring Break by Louise O’Gorman is an impressive interpretation of what freedom is all about. The freedom of being young and care free comes through beautifully in the piece. All too often, images of young people enjoying themselves seems restrictive by rules and regulations. However, Spring Break allows for a different perspective. Instead of depicting a stagnant pool setting, the surrounding background is abolished. From the imagery, it is difficult to determine if the children are swimming in a pool, lake, or even the ocean and that adds to the impressionistic free expression this piece brings to light.
I've just added this new image "By the Banks of the Pigeon House" to my gallery in a few different sizes. Inspired by Black and white darkroom techniques, this image has hues of sepia seeping through the muted textured background. The red and white painted towers are symbolic of old hand painted photographs.
