Foxgloves in Dentdale
This work was inspired and painted on a trip i took to North Yorkshire in the Uk in the summer of 2015. I spent a day out and about sketching and this painting came about when i came across a clump of foxgloves in a valley on a tiny little track of a road in dentdale.
The painting used the sketch as a base and then was painted intuitively, colours calling to me based on the emotion and feeling i wanted to express and a few colours that popped out to me from the landscape.
It is painted on a slim stretched canvas and has hanging string and hardware attached which can be easily removed. The painting can be hung as it is or they look good with a simple 2 inch frame around them.
The paint has been applied in layers and also has added areas of sand based texture. In other areas the paint has been applied more thickly so there are some raised details.
The sides of the painting have drips and paint marks adding to the authenticity of the originality of the painting. You can choose to leave this or frame.
To keep the painting colours fresh, as it contains watercolour and fluorescent paint, avoid direct sunlight as the colours will fade. It has been sprayed with a UV varnish.
