You have to wonder how such a lovely lady could have such an ugly baby!
This was one of the best of an early group of experiments with painted canvas, mainly due to the large portrait of the woman which dominates the “landscape”.
Unfortunately in several cases the diluted paint faded quickly when the piece was hung up, so I adjusted my technique and started producing canvases with coloured splatters and drops of thicker paint instead.
I don’t know the person who bought this piece so I guess I’ll never know whether it faded or not!
Please take the time to view the full image, I’m particularly proud of the small figures in the lakeside scene.
