Sunday and sunshine - rare combination

Hi everybody. Yesterday I decided to have a lazy day at home and do some painting. I wanted to do a square painting, but then I found these three 15 x 8" canvases, and decided to use them I have made three which go together to form a triptych. I painted them first with a layer of white, with a tiny bit of yellow in it so it wouldn't be too bright. Then I added the colours, just sticking to more-or-less geometric forms in yellow, greens, some orange and a tiny touch of red. I did a little bit of patterning with a CWS reversed chicken wire stencil, and that was that. I still haven't quite decided how to hang them, and may swap left and right again, or turn them - we shall see. I have them hanging on the kitchen wall.




Here I was trying out which side looked better where....



And this is how they are hanging now. What do you think?


Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  4. They looks awesome, Valerie! Love the bright colors and those red strips. :) Try and see how they would look if the red strips were on the outside and somewhat framing the triptych. That green one on the right in the last photo is my fave.

  18. Great summery and bright colours Valerie, I love the sequin waste stamp it adds so much to a design:0) If on a white wall with nothing too close your combo is great but my inclination would be to try them with the red splashes on the outside or maybe the inside, my tidy mind here LOL. Have you tried them horizontally? I do really like them and think they look great in any arrangement, Gay xxx
