These are the last two paintings that have been sold before my summer. So in total I have sold 21 paintings, given 3 gifts and kept 3 paintings for myself “artist’s collection” which means this was an absolute record for me. I still have people asking about three of them quite regularly but if I sell them it won’t be until after the break. I am really happy with my new style so am looking forward to developing it further after the break. I have had many requests for boats, trees and sunsets so we shall see what inspires me in August.
Whatever style/theme I use will definitely have the textures as I am loving the depth and visual interest they create not to mention playing with colour which is an absolute joy for me.
As they sell I will post them here so those of you who would be here (if you were in Ghana) could feel like you are still experiencing the exhibit. Soon I will add the photos of the event then it will be time for us to fly to the UK, Bulgaria and Greece for the summer so there won’t be any more updates until we get back to Ghana. I have no idea what style I will be working on this time next year but I am looking forward to seeing the development.
I sold 15 paintings which is a record for me!!!!! It was a fantastic show with a continual flow of people all day. Thanks so much for taking the time to see my work. I REALLY appreciate it. The remaining paintings are still for sale.
art Exhibition Poster FINAL
I will look forward to seeing you there.
Here is a very different painting for me. I have been wanting to paint the boats for a long time. This is actually my biggest canvas yet. I have combined techniques from my past and present paintings. For the texture in the boats I used a paint knife and dry brushing (just like in my old wall paintings). The sand was created with a texture grainy gel while the soft colours were applied with rollers. I really love this technique as it picks up the textures of the layers underneath. I have 4 small paintings left to paint this week and then that is everything that I am putting into the exhibition. Any other canvases will be for next year. I am really happy that I got the chance to complete this painting yesterday.
