The artist's story...
About this magenta red & pink fine art print
This fine art print is from an original watercolour and mixed media abstract painting.
A Sense of Summer is a light and pretty abstract, which feels summery and joyful.
This is another artwork where I deliberately worked with a colour that isn't normally part of my colour palette. Namely the pop of bright magenta red! I generally prefer to paint with deep reds such as crimson and burgundy. But it's good to explore and work with different colours and materials. And the resulting painting made me feel happy.
Coincidentally, it turns out that the hues of red I've been using recently are right on trend for 2023. Pantone announced their Colour of the Year as a similar shade of red called Viva Magenta! 😍
Does this artwork make you feel happy?
