Stronghold is the painting that set this series off. I had so much fun painting the large sky that I just wanted to do it over and over again.
However, when I launched the series, I made myself promise that I would use the same three colours each time, something I did not restrict when I painted Stronghold.
All are acrylic on canvas, and with the exception of Lake View (12″x 12″, $75) and Rocky Shore (40″x 30″, gallery canvas unframed, $400), are 20″x16″ canvases set in black floating frames, $200 each.
I am still adding to this series. I find it soothing to paint in this style and palette and therefore keep going back to it when I find I need a break.
Fall into these paintings and be soothed.
