On the road to recovery after my operation

Since my operation (see my previous blog post) I have been getting seriously frustrated at not being able to get back into the swing of things again and pickup a paint brush. Over the last week the medication I have been taking after upping my dosage seemed to kick in so I have slowly begun to try and get back to normality.

I have had a couple of small commission pieces which I had to put off so I decided to start there. The first was a 3 piece set where the client wanted something floral in yellow and golds and has a love for butterflies but also wanted something contemporary. The result was this 3 piece painting called ‘LuLudia’

The flowers were created in a bright yellow with iridescent highlights using mediums to give a reflective shimmer effect. The contemporary butterflies were accented with gold leaf.

I had two more small commissions to complete where the client wasn’t sure whether they wanted abstract Cityscape paintings or Landscape painting incorporating a waterfall. They wanted two similar paintings in different colours of Burgundy and Turquoise to match their interior decor. My finished paintings were Vourgoundia Reflection and Turquoise Reflection where I used heavy moulding paste to give the paintings texture and incorporated mixtures of Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Red and Light Blue Permanent. The water reflection was coated and finished to give a clear glass like finish which finished off both pieces beautifully.

It sure does feel good to be back and gradually on the road to recovery.
