This started off as one painting, but I didn't like how it was going. I attempted to make it into something else, but again it wasn't working. So then I stopped trying to base it on anything and just played with the paint. I'm very pleased with the results! I love the feeling of movement in the lines.
This actually went wrong, but I quite like how it turned out. I had to put up with my dad watching the Open golf tournament on the TV at the weekend, and there was a rather lovely sky. Very 50s colours with greys, yellows and a bit of purple - as you can see above! I tried to add a silhouette of a cooling tower but it didn't look right so I turned it into a wind turbine.
This was based on the way fluff collected in my old tumble drier. You could see all the layers of the different loads of washing you'd put through. I used a purple colour scheme so it could go in my bedroom. The top photo shows it on the non purple wall in my room!
