Bed time

Unmade bed 1   33 x 41.5cm

8 April 2017

I am currently working on a series of paintings of unmade beds.  The inspiration came from walking round a house that I was renting with my family.  It was very quiet.  They had all gone out for a walk and there were just these ‘remains of where they had been’ and I found it very moving. The subject matter is naturally evocative – I want the paintings to be dark and still, slightly brooding but peaceful.  Technically the method of painting has been rather brooding too with paint being layered on and lifted off in stages to create a muted, soft yet strong, effect.
