I have finally finished a three panelled "square" for my lovely sister-in-law and family, to go in their recently updated family/kitchen area that has beautiful high ceilings painted white, freshly painted walls in hogs bristle (quarter I think), and a stunning glass double-sided Cheminees Philippe fireplace with a rendered chimney going all the way up to those gorgeous beamed ceilings.
My painting is 1.2m square and will be hung above the fire-place. A real honour!
I have to admit that being abstract in style, this was completely out of my comfort zone. But I admit, once I got the hang of it, I had a blast!! No idea if it is any good, but Sal says she likes it which is the most important thing.
My brief was to do it in mostly beiges and similar tonings (very neutral), with some red to bring colour into the room. Beige....neutral...red. No peachy colours thank you ;-) Oh, and Sal loves a very special tree outside of her kitchen window, so I popped that in somewhere too. I can't take a decent photo of the paintings, despite trying. So no complete photos will be taken until they are finally settled in their chosen hanging space.
Until then, let me tempt you with a teeny snippet of one of the panels.
Trust me when I say that the colours are off - that peachy colour is actually less so...more beige neutral. I hope.
