This is a painting for my loving, supportive, wise friend and wife, Carole. Her favourite colour is blue, and the image is intended to symbolise movement, a journey, hence the title – Direction of Travel.
The painting is 20cm x 38cm, acrylic on canvas. I painted this in several layers, over several days, trying to add light and shade and through the thickness of paint, a little depth too. I rarely use acrylic paint – and I really enjoyed making this so I will make more use of this medium in future.
