GILL VINES

Contemporary British Painter

Log

I’ve been busy with a couple of commissions and in between searching for sunshine and bright skies!
I’ve also been experimenting with painting on a dark ground. So blocking the canvas with dark purples and greys and then using my favourite whites and lilacs to emphasise the bright contrasts you see at this time of year. I used the dark ground in both these pieces. The Staithes beach is oil on board for a change from my usual acrylic, and again the buttery texture is what I love about oils.
