This may be my favourite painting to date.
The amazing weather continues so I continue to paint outdoors, today on the cliffs above Penberth.
With this long run of sunny days I have been painting in the garden, capturing the full flowering of high summer.
A satisfying hoard of foxgloves ready for my new collages.
Lots more to come.
Disperse dyes I painted onto paper have been transformed into glowing brilliance by transference onto fabric.
The satisfying sight of a drawer full of bluebells, replenishing the stock I used up this Spring.
The collage I have been working on during Open Studios Cornwall is now finished and on the wall for all to see. More details about it http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/tunnel-green-light but best if you can see it in person.
Work in progress which has proved the perfect way to explain my collage technique to visitors.
Generally, during Open Studios, I work on flowers and leaves; relatively simple things that demonstrate my art while leaving part of my brain free to talk with visitors. This year I have decided to work on a complex new piece for which these velvets have been dyed. A tunnel of green light created by trees overhanging a Cornish Lane. Time will tell if my brain can juggle all of this.
