Showing off.

                            Brazen   Oils on canvas board   5 x 7 inches  

This is the last of my lavender paintings (for now) and these beauties are really showing off.  Bold brush strokes give an expressive feel to the picture. 

I am really breaking some of the 'rules' of composition by making the lines come together nearly in the centre, and the horizon is nearly halfway too.   Someone once said...if you are going to break the rules, do it in a big way and make a statement. (Or something like that.)

I decided to be brazen about it using a bright, 'summer' palette.    For a different approach look at the painting below by Edward Seago...


      Edward Brian Seago  'Wolferton Church, Norfolk'  Oil on panel  8.5 x 10.5 inches

I am posting this little painting by the Master of Atmosphere.  A scene in Norfolk, his home county.   Balanced and understated, this painting is not brazen.   I like his gentle colours, a subtle 'winter' palette.
