Artwork description:

This is a painting of a small section of the view from my parents' house in Northamptonshire. The photo on which it is predominantly based had white streaky lines going down it from the rain. I tried to replicate this by scraping away the paint with various sandpapers and knives to give different sized vertical lines to imitate the depth. While I mostly used acrylics; some of them were mixed with linseed oil to act as a glaze and provide a sense of distortion associated with rain.
The particular scene featured is especially important to me as I was adopted by my parents at the age of 5. The house, where they still live, was one of the first places I felt happy. Although the painting may come across a bit melancholy I honestly love this view.

Materials used:

Acrylics, Linseed oil, sandpaper, kives, brushes
