I may have missed a few blog posts over the last few days for the Ultimate Blog Challenge so I'll need to do 3 a day to catch up.
To be fair, I've been a little busy with family and my exhibition at Kelham Island. Family are all settled back to normal , exhibition is ongoing. The picture above is one of two very large canvasses I did specifically for the show.
It's called Nebula and measures 6ft x 4ft. I have several paintings in the exhibition on a space theme. I really enjoy doing them as they give me the chance to use different techniques. For instance, in this one, I apply the background colours with an atomiser to give that gentle gradation from one colour to another.
As a Scientist ( I studied Maths and Chemistry at University) I am always fascinated by astronomy so it was great to be able to combine my interests.
I would love to know your thoughts and answer any questions on this piece, just leave a comment below.
