Dye-work for another collage. These painterly backgrounds add greatly to the richness and sense of depth in the final collage.
Just in time for the exhibition at Salthouse 2 in St Ives, a new textile collage of the cliffs of Cornwall and the gorgeous flowers that grow among the granite. More details http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/cliff-top-honeysuckle-and-heather
Framing is always an interesting challenge. It needs both to work with and enhance the art, and it is also the bridge between art and the space in which it is to hang. The accepted style in Cornwall, which is a centre for the arts, is very minimal white on white. Here I have chosen a lime waxed molding both immediately around the oil painting and framing the whole. Between is a white painted board. I do like this clean but finished look.
A new video, explaining the link between the art of the garden and the art created in the garden.
Honeysuckle for a small collage of Heather and Honeysuckle on the cliffs near Penberth.
Almost there with my new painting which has been a lot of fun. It confirmed how much I love those hot colours.
Finding my 'Arc of Gold' looked just like a Gustav Klimt painting, I thought I would find out what my own oil painting would look like.
'Hydrangeas beside Meadow' in life and art. The painting I began a couple of weeks ago. I have been waiting for the Hydrangea aspera to fully open its stamen filled flowers.
