Life stuff by Carole Russell

This is based on a photo taken on holiday (Capri, Italy) when I zoomed in I realised there was a little drama in progress – decided it had to be painted!

    The look and feel are clearly Italian and as to the drama, love it. Super work Carole.

  • Thank you Jim – amazing what you find when you actually open your eyes isn’t it – had the photo for two years and never noticed that someone was in the middle of a crisis.
    When I first sketched it out my fella said he was looking distressed because his arms where too short – hee hee – hopefully sorted in the finished work though

    Great painting Carole, great colours.

  • Thank you Paul :):) Yes – I fell in love with the red when I mixed it and the blue seems to sing when at it’s side – more luck than judgement on my part though
