Now that the weather is making us think of holidays and beaches, I thought I would put this painting on my website. Inspired by a very busy scene last year on the public beach near Montisilvano, Italy, I was fascinated by how much interaction – mostly non-verbal, was happening around me. Acrylic 53.5 x 53.5 cm
About angela brittain
Each work I create has a search for “rightness” – an attempt to solve complex and often self-imposed compositional problems. They often have a tension below the surface. I work mainly in acrylics on board. People fascinate me but I’m not sure that I made a conscious decision to make people central to my work or if this subject chose me. I have a Diploma in Art and Design and worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrator before finally returning to my first love of drawing & painting in 2008. I have taught art to children and adults and currently offer one-to-one workshops from my home studio in West Sussex. I have recently been elected as an Associate Member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) and exhibit in London and the South.
