Getting the mood right

From a painting point of view, the last few  months have been very slow. The continuous grind of work pressures plus travelling back to SA to get our China visas renewed took the usual toll on my painting time and motivation.

I have been working on my latest assignment for London College of Art – all about creating atmosphere and mood – and it took a LONG time to achieve the right mood. Not helped by jet-lag and my general grumpiness and moodiness from work stresses, I might add. But somewhere along the way, I got into the mood of it all and I am very pleased with the results.

So here are my two moody paintings:
