IN MY STUDIO THIS WEEK…

702ad5f8-073d-427f-874e-ec5d1e410f99So this week I’ve been cracking on with finishing the commissions I had left. I’ve been really enjoying embroidering details onto the three canvases which are views of Praa Sands and Hendra beach in Cornwall. It’s so satisfying to turn a drawing into a unique piece of artwork with applique and little hand stitched details. It’s hard to see in this photo but I’ve stitched the little cliff top flowers in yellow and pale pink threads.

I decided to paint a couple of frames in ‘off black’ farrow and ball paint – and they look fabulous.

I think this size works really well for this landscape view – I love the feeling of space that the mount gives it. I’m quite excited to be planning to do various landscape views with trees on this format in future.
