I’ve struggled lately to get lift-off with my painting but here is a new one that I really enjoyed doing. The theme is the idea of having a guardian angel and whilst I was working I was playing some jazz piano and one of the tracks was “Someone to watch over me” sung by the wonderful Ella Fitzgerald. How perfect the coming together of my thoughts and the music.
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 oil or 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.
