Trail through the Pines

Trail through the Pines (30cm x 30cm acrylic on mount board)

I’ve not given up on summer yet.  Trees remain a bit of an obsession still and this is based on a small sketch I made in August.  I was attracted by the shadows and the wonderful shapes of the pines.  Pure acrylic rather than mixed media this time.

Allotment Greens

I thought that it would be fun to revisit an allotment I painted in the Spring and this is the result.

My original painting was titled ‘Allotment Blues’ – https://sarahjenningsartist.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/allotment-blues/

The plot has since greened up dramatically and I have tried to emphasise the enclosed feeling by purposely excluding the sky.  I was particularly attracted to the way the white flowers of the hollyhocks contrasted with dark shed on the left and the splashes of orange in the distance.  Still love the blue shed too!

This is the second of my allotment pieces.  The combination of the blue shed and pots and the vivid spring green grass was something I knew immediately that I wanted to paint. Lots of fun!  Available to buy here  http://sarahjenningsartist.com/gallery_698663.html

I’ve lots more recent paintings to share that I have not yet found time to put here so expect a flurry of posts over the course of the next few days.
