There is something hypnotic about a deserted swimming pool in the sunshine and I wanted to capture that quality in this painting. Some of the picture is painted quite densely with close attention paid to the detail of the shadows etc, but sections of the water are very loosely painted and I like the effect of the contrasting styles. Before I started on the painting I had Richard Diebenkorn's aerial paintings of LA in mind, but actually now it's finished I think the picture has echoes of David Hockney.
It is a large deep edged linen canvas (100 x 100 cm) with white edges, and as such, is designed to be hung unframed. The painting is signed on the front and comes with a signed and stamped Certificate of Authenticity.
Prior to shipping, this picture will be carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and then packed in a sturdy cardboard box and then shipped to your destination by a reputable courier. In the event that your destination is not shown on the shipping table then please contact me, I do ship internationally and will be happy to get you a quote.
