|Rain and reflections, 8" x 10", Oil on Board, 2011 SOLD
This is one of my little alla prima paintings of London. In this painting I introduced my own colour scheme to the scene which would have rather been harsh if i kept it as it was. Normally the London buses are a harsh warm red colour but I decided to move it to the purple tint range to support my warm purplish scheme here. I then added a yellow umbrella to compliment the whole picture.
"When the artist is alive in any person...he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens and he opens ways for better understanding."- Robert Henri
