Horizons New - First painting
Here is the first I hope, in a series of small paintings that are as much about the setting as the figure itself. I want my fascination with mood and atmosphere to apply to this series of figurative paintings. I am looking to use rich colour, strong design and more textured surfaces to give them impact and hopefully a recognisable contemporary style - OK I am probably trying to run before I can walk but I feel that now is the time to try this out. I have been thinking for some time about doing some figurative paintings as a figure offers so more compositional possibilities than a landscape for instance and I have quite a few ideas in the locker that I want to try out.
