Steffi, Acrylics on canvas, 61cm x 46cm

Inspired by the work of Xenia Hausner, I have been playing with colours and loving this new way of working. 
 
 “Steffi” is painted in acrylics which I have found quite challenging being more familiar with oils, however it is certainly teaching me to work faster.   While I still love my oils and they are my first preference, in making the shift it has been great fun to play with colours in this medium given the flexibility created with the faster drying time.  
 
Was curious to be back on canvas again after painting on boards now for the last year or more.
 
Watch this space as I am keen to do more of this type of work and have another painting almost completed.  Love the colour and drama of it.
