The Alley

I discovered  Viktoria Prishedko work recently and I admire it. I always find realistic abstracts as fun and joy to paint. I have tried it in recent days and practice here another one of her recent paintings. I just called it the ‘Walking the Alley’ .. I think I have some much work to do and a long way to go before I acheive her qualityand superb atmosphere. Thanks for the inspiration, Viktoria and many more who paint in such a beautiful relaxed style.

Walking the Alley

Inspiration by French

Often I look around and see pictures or paintings which I very much like. Normally it is painted by an artist that I also like. I recently read an article about The Basic triad by, Soraya French. I like Soraya style and with her inspiration I painted in acrylics my ‘French’. When I named the painting, I did not think much about the name. It took me few minutes later to notice that although it was an obvious Mediterranean, French village, like Soraya painted, actually her name is also ‘French’ so here you have it a combination based on two ‘French’. As she suggested in her article and by the paintings she displayed, ‘French Landscape’, I also used green, purple and orange to paint it.
