A Little Further Down The Road

‘A Little Further Down the Road’ — acrylic on unstretched canvas, 255 x 255 mm, 2020

This little landscape was inspired by a detail of my coloured-in Port Chalmers colouring page ~ now completely reimagined. 

I really didn’t like my first attempt (see previous post). It wasn’t fun to paint and I didn’t feel connected to the end result. So I stopped painting from the reference and started looking at what was in front of me on the canvas… exploring shapes and colours and remembering how it felt when we first came upon this view back in 2017. And I had a ball.

I was at the point of deciding whether or not to paint the house in the foreground a brighter red when my husband walked in and said “it’s finished” 🎨 …and so it is.

    1. Hi, Aleesha. I’m not sure about painting a phoenix but I appreciate the suggestion and I will think about it : ) Thank you for your kind words about my art, Anna
