A selection of studies and variations in many media inspired by a Ewart Johns painting that I was lucky enough to buy and now own. His painting is titled “Barbara lying on a coloured blanket”. I have posted several of these works individually on this blog before but I decided to feature them as a series to see how they view collectively.
The painting by Ewart Johns hangs on the wall of my bedroom and from there it has travelled into my depths.
I found this piece of black wood while doing a beach clean at Shellybanks on the South Wall in Dublin. I was very taken with it so I took it home gave it a wipe and waited for the moment of inspiration. I saw the figure in the wood and brought it out in crayon which I later touched up with acrylic paint.
It is featured in the table selfies post but I wanted to give it its own post because I think it deserves it.
