It still amazes me how the seasons can affect my painting and colour palette.
Last week's heat wave and the beautiful bunch of peonies that my Art Foundation students gave me have really influenced the colours I have chosen for 'A Midsummer Painting.'
I never, ever plan what I'm going to paint, and so it's only after I have finished that I can see how my surroundings, or even my emotions at the time, have crept into my work.
And I really enjoyed painting her dress!
Hope you like, she will be included in an online exhibition I'm planning for later in the year.
Fingers crossed for a bit more sunshine soon!
