Just finished a small painting as shown here. Very simple, just black acrylic paint on unpainted linen deep edged canvas, size 8×8.
The design was formed free hand, in that I didn’t draw out the image first using pencil or source the design from preliminary sketches. I just started painting and let the image form itself. The inspiration for this design are the Jacobean tapestries of the 17th century, the motifs of which were often based around the themes of nature, which were organic and free flowing, usually incorporating, leaves, flowers foliage, and had moved away to a degree from the tight formality and geometry of the Tudor period.
As an example, and I stress my painting was not directly taken from these designs, but inspired only.
