Lesley Brooks - oil
I paint things that interest me, catch my eye; my senses and my mind, making me want to look further. I then consider the arrangement of shape, space, tone and colour within a planned or selected composition.
I am doing even more colour-mixing at the moment, using subtle shifts in hue and tone, to create some magic on the canvas. I want my painting to be interesting when I have my nose almost pressed against it and also when I walk away and turn quickly, to see what has happened!
