Learning From A Child - A city retrospective.
This painting is titled "City Retrospective - Through the eyes of the inner child."
The inspiration for this piece came while I was with a friends son who was drawing and painting along side me. I decided to "take some lessons" from him and observed as he scribbled and drew, painted and let unfold his magical land of houses, lakes and what in the end looked to me like a little village.
Following suite I did the same and the end result is ... "City Retrospective". Although very abstract this painting it is quite remarkable that this painting looks very much like Perth as one would see it from the South Perth Foreshore.
This painting is framed and measures 52 x 72cm(w). Acrylic on Canvas with some silver foil (see bridge). It is bold, modern and no photo that I have taken does it justice!
James - Thank You for this lesson, it goes to show, you never know which easel your next teacher may be hiding behind. Love Carmen.
