Artwork description:

This painting is part of a body of work I completed in late 2017 inspired by an inherited collection of old photographs. I loved the vintage/retro vibes of this scene, with the old classic cars in the background and the young people lounging in the foreground over their picnic. The remote looking Scottish location also gives it a timeless feel. The original photo was a tiny black and white one, approx 3cm square. In this painting I have enlarged the scene and added my own imagined colour scheme, using expressive brushstrokes to try and capture the atmosphere and joy of the moment.

The painting is on a cradled woooden panel and was made using acrylic paint for the under layers, then oil paint on top giving texture and richness to the final surface. The painting is currently framed in a contemporary slim white wooden edge frame, but the frame can be removed prior to shipping if you would rather choose your own frame.

This panting was exhibited in OPEN - SSA & VAS Together 2018, the annual open exhibition of the Society of Scottish Artists (and Visual Arts Scotland) in the RSA Galleries, Edinburgh, 29 Jan-March 8th, 2018.
