Purple Tulips

The weather lately has been warm and sunny which attracted me to painting outside. The tulips in the garden were at their best. I knew they wouldn’t stay this way for long so this forced me to get on and do a painting in situ. My study was in pastel and I then went on to paint in oils for the final painting.

New Studio

I am excited to share the news that I now have a studio in Pittenweem. This is the Wash House that I have been exhibiting at for the last 14 years. I love the location, it has inspired so many paintings. Looking forward to spending more time in Pittenweem and painting outdoors.

During the Pittenweem Arts Festival my paintings are exhibited in the Wash House and out on the West Shore.

The cottage next to the Wash House gives me a base when working in Pittenweem.

Looking out from the Wash House there is always something interesting to see.

Monotone Paintings

Study for High Tide, The Gyles

For a number of years I have been doing monotone paintings. I mix black and white oil paint to a limited number of tones usually 4 or 5. I use these to paint my subjects. l love doing these paintings however when I crave more colour I can revert to my full colour palette. My website now has a gallery showing a selection of these paintings, which you can see from the following link http://ginawright.co.uk/monotone.html.
