Orange Fade

Date: March 2018

Size: 102 x 82 cm

Media: emulsion and acrylic on stretched canvas.

Colours: background Little Green emulsion Sky Blue and Trumpet; orange acrylic.

Description: the aim was to convey a semi-impressionistic landscape with a setting sun fading off the canvas and with a background with no defined boundaries other than a gradual transition of colour Рperhaps Africa with a safari/savanah  theme. This was my first work on a large scale, simplistic in design and approach, very spontaneous and completed in one seesion of about three hours.

Self satisfaction score: 7/10 planned w1ith a sense of scale and colour combinations. Technical execution of orange sun could be improved. Feedbacl from viewers is very positive, one comment “Monet” like!
