Original artwork description:

‘What a boon to live on the water! Such delicious shades and hues! This is a template worthy of the greatest painters. The textures of sand and stone could inspire incomparable sculptures, and the sounds – the steady lapping of the waves, the sweet chirping of the birds, make this a sanctuary.’ – Author: Adriana Trigiani

I painted this one on the edge of the lake during the course of one day as the light changed and created colours on the water. Birds came and went all day, but I chose this pair as they made their way easterly.

The impressionist painters in the late 1800’s were greatly affected by the traditional art coming out of the east, Japan in particular, and I think this one has an Asian feel to it, hence the title – ‘Looking East’.

Like most expeditions in plein air painting, this panel had its fair share of being dropped/blown of the easel and at times was covered in debris – it bears all the marks of being painted in situ, and all the bits and pieces stuck to it adds to the texture and integrity!

Materials used:
