"The surroundings gardens of a hotel provided the inspiration for a playful series of images using the seemingly random layout of trees and shrubs. The lack of formality lead to some unusual juxtapositions of shape and colour. Initially a series of collages, I really enjoyed introducing a looser style when applying the paint for the foliage and flowers which is contrasted with the almost flat background.
Please read my blog - Portuguese Gardens - recent paintings - for further details on the creative process."
Many original pieces from this series, using acrylic on board, are available to buy from this website through this link here.
Framed prints will be available soon.
