New Zodiac series

I’ve commenced my new Zodiac Series of paintings with Taurus. This painting called “Taurus tamed” was inspired by the characteristics of this star sign ( reliable, practical, ambitious and sensual with an eye for beauty) and something I read that for a bull-ride to count, the rider has to stay on it’s back for 8 minutes. It seemed that a softer, feminine approach with a degree of collaboration was going to win out over lots of male bravado so this is what I decided to paint. 30 x 30cm acrylic on wood.

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 am a Member of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) and exhibit in London and the South.
