14" x18" - acrylic on canvas - sold
In June a friend commissioned a smallish landscape painting for a mutual friend who was retiring from teaching. This is the finished work. I didn't set out to use such a warm and predominantly pink palette. It resulted from starting with a magenta coloured ground, and as I painted I realized how much I was liking the base colour, so began to vary it but maintain it too. My friend who commissioned the painting was very happy with it, and our friend who received it was thrilled. And so am I that it worked out so well.
