Great Aunt Mary’s Chair (pen and watercolour)

Here is a sketch I made a while back of my aunt’s chair which came down to me. It has a wonderful tapestry back and seat covered with strange animals and plants. It always fascinated me.I used some of the imagery in the painting I have just shared  in the previous post.The  chair  was  the  starting  point  for  the  painting  in  effect.

Into the Light (with seated couple after Goya)

Am leaving this oil painting now and am ready to share it with you. It has been a very slow process indeed making this one, not sure why! I am exploring new directions through my work now maybe that’s why it is taking so long. There are some details as well and sketches that I made in preparation from a tapestry chair of my Great Aunt Mary’s. It’s always good to have real objects to draw from as with the bouquet which I shared in a previous post. Click images as usual to enlarge folks!
