I put the 'blue madonna' on temporary hold, whilst I concentrated on another new abstract figurative piece. Here are some 'work in progress' images together with the completed painting.
When starting, in my mind I had a young family I know and love very well. As with all my recent work I then just let the painting happen. I wanted it to have a similar mood to the recent 'Lean on Me' pastel painting, which unusually for me had softer colours than I normally use. I'm enjoying the muted colouring and will try to take this further when I develop the 'blue madonna'.
Checked my emails and discovered that interior design consultant, Cynthia Thomas, has featured some of my work on her superb blog Serenity in Design.
