I did this acrylic painting some time ago and today was updating my website grahammcquadefineart.com and thought it might be good on my blog as they are looking to do some Fracking in our area So here it is.
I gave a copy of it away to a fellow painter who is in Greenpeace and she used it as part of a banner for a march she was on.
Painting the stars was a bit of fun, flicking white paint at the paper.
A bright Autumn day in Swaledale, overlooking Gunnerside. I was taken by the bright foreground yellows, illuminated by the autumn sun, which contrasted to the lilacs and blues further up the shaded valley. Also, the smoke from the log fires, which hung in the windless air, added to the atmosphere in more ways than one. I will put this painting on my website shortly: grahammcquadefineart.com
I did this pastel at a life drawing group recently, playing around with tones in a specific hue, although I did add some blue to push out the tonal range a bit further. I will add this to my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
This is another marine painting but a seascape rather than a lakeland scene. I did this in three colours including white to try and maintain a calm afternoon on the Mediterranean. I will shortly upload this to my website: grahammcquadefineart.com.
