I have included these four paintings of my mums patio, although I did them some time ago. I thought that whilst I’m finishing the sea scape it would be good to go back to some of my early work.
It was whilst doing these paintings that I realised I could make things any colour I wanted and that I didn’t have to try to be like a camera. The paving slabs are really grey and boring, so I decided to paint them in all different colours to make them look more interesting. This has given me much more freedom to paint things as I want to. Fortunately other people must have liked what I did, because all four of the paintings have been sold.
