Vibrant Art for Maximalist Interiors
These are some of my most colourful art prints. Inspired by colour palettes of jewels. To add a pop or colour or for a full on maximalist setting, some of these could work well.
This is a really warm and colourful print based on Gloucester Docks. I originally created it using Lino but have coloured it digitally to make it really bold and bright. I find colour in industrial and urban areas really beautiful - sunlight and reflections. It is an area where nature is allowed into the city which is great for wellbeing for those of us that live in these places. This print has everything I love about Gloucester Docks with reflections, colour and lots of windows.
This print depicts Montmartre, Paris, in all its colourful glory. The original painting is experimental with drawing and collage; metro maps of Paris, pictures from magazines, tissue paper. I've used a bright palette, focusing on warm colours - even the blues are mostly turquoise.
This was a small painting, showing the reflections of dockside buildings in the water. I always love painting inland waterways; I think in cities they contribute so much to wellbeing. I like the strong colour combination and sketchy style in this print. A little bit of collaged map shows through in the sky.
This is an iconic cafe in Rhodes, close to the sea. I set it at night to highlight the shape of the windmill and make it more colourful. Yellow and blue is one of my favourite colour combinations to paint!
The Sky Garden is one of my favourite places in London. It features amazing views as well as tropical style gardens. This is my favourite view, looking down onto other gardens in the sky! For my art it is great inspiration to see the city of London from a different angle.
This colourful art print of Bristol Harbour features the iconic cranes along the waterfront. Typical of harbourside engineering, these tower above and can still be seen working. I created this with digitally collaged layers of old paintings, including some sheets I paint for this purpose. The sky is from a sheet of marbling I did when I was at school. I love the contrast of a night time colour palette against the warmth of a brightly lit city.
A colourful print of a cafe at night in Old Town, Swindon. It contrasts vibrant primary colours and silhouettes from the glowing light of the café against the cooler light above. I like paintings things where it has light sources of different colours. It has lots of abstract and scribbly detail including some hard to decipher writing. I did this painting pre-covid, and the two people standing looked a bit odd. Now they look as if they are having a socially distanced conversation!
This is one of my favourite Streets in Bath, It is quiet and full of colour, with many quirky independent shops and cafes. It was a great place to sit and sketch!
I've been to Paris a few times on art trips. On my last visit I decided to do the things I'd never done before. One of these was to take a canal trip from Bastille to the north of Paris. The first part was underground, which was eery but interesting! We then emerged into a side of Paris that most tourists never see. Part of the area has been redeveloped into Parc de la Villete.
A bright and colourful image of Paris at night. When in paris, I stayed in the Latin Quarter. The little side streets were full of colourful cafes that looked so inviting at night. This print contrasts vibrant primary colours and silhouettes from the glowing light of the café against the cooler light above. I used lavender, lemon and turquoise for unusual colours against the primaries.
I visited Portsmouth Harbour, and this enormous fishing trawler towered above the dock and shipyard. I really enjoyed doing this painting; I handcut a stencil to paint the masts. The image didn't really come to life until I painted the sky yellow.
