This week at my art group I painted a number of aceo paintings where I set out to play a hard line image against a soft background.
"Distant Henge" Another based on Stonehenge, my son ( a bit of a new age freak) has bagged this for his bedroom wall. I have to say that I am very pleased with this one. As it is aceo/atc size it was quite difficult to paint the stones. But I do like the colour and the way it blends in the foreground.
"Yellow Sunset" As it turned out I rather liked the hard and soft edges that developed here - giving a sort of misty appearance, so I decided not to proceed with any further image and let it stand on its own.
