August - Two new abstracts

Here are two new abstract paintings that I have been working on for quite some time and, after some quite radical changes, I'm happy with how they look now.  Both paintings will be on show at St Ives Society of Artists members exhibition, which opens in the Crypt Gallery, Old Mariners Church, St Ives, on Monday, 9 August, 2010.  Click images to enlarge.

'Clouds and Mountain Tops' acrylic/oil on canvas, 36 x 18 inches, 91 x 46 cm.  SOLD

'From Land and Sea 2010' acrylic/oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches, 76 x 61 cm.  SOLD

  1. They look great Lesley, I especially like the movement and texture in the blue, it suggests giant waves.

    I might even get a chance to see this in the flesh!

  2. I like the restraint of these, Lesley, and the feeling of the sea, the power of it.
    Do so wish I could attend the show.

    I love the colour combinations and patterns in the paint, yes it feels like the sea.x
