This is another painting from the Looking at Landscape course I am doing. We are now onto texture as well as tone so the paint is put on fairly thickly. This picture of the corner of my back garden was begun by painting the whole canvas red so that this shows through and gives some dynamic to the bright colours.
This painting was done for an assignment and is in response to an historic event or news item. A few weeks ago it was both - celebrating the 1969 moon landing. The collage was made from a newspaper supplement of the old newspapers from 40 years ago.
