Messing About with Paint



Oil on Linen 35cmx50cm

A painting from one of the many gardens in Japan.

Nothing fancy, a bunch of purple smeared around the canvas, creating an undemanding painting.

  1. This is an exceptional piece in my opinion Jandre’! It shows how important the uncontrived is in a good painting and the way you’ve handled the medium, composition and execution defines the word “uncontrived’.

    Absolutely beautiful in its freshness and vitality..

    • Thanks Markus. Perhaps not over thinking was key, and possibly having the under painting made a difference in that I didn’t have to cover every mm when I painted??
