Catkins at Helford – Contempory Style in Acrylic Paint

Title “Catlins At Helford”
Size 9″ x 4″
Medium Acrylic

Some of my work will be exhibited along with many Artists from August 1st to the 15th @ The Mawnan Smith Exhibition – Helford Nr Falmouth .Do pop along if you can.

“Catkins at Helford” is a slightly more contempory style for me, where, less is more , I have kept the brushstrokes to a minimum and slightly blurred the overall detail,using a fan brush, relying more on the colours than on the detail.
The background colours are Pthalo Blue, Crimson, Paynes Grey & Cyan Blue, those colours throw the background back as they are verging on the Blue tones and by blurring the background and middle distance ( Gulls on the mud) and emphasising a bit more detail on the branches and catkins, it gives you a more in depth image even on a small canvas such as this.
