Digital Art Prints by Graham McKenzie Smith.
'Nearly there' - Not as far as this Coronavirus lockdown goes, unfortunately, but the title of a new painting. As a self-employed artist, I'm well used to self isolation, working from home and painting or drawing in quiet solitude. Not that I flee from company and I'm always happy to see my family return from work/school, but I have never regretted not working in a busy environment. However, I am aware that everyone is different and many people cannot stand being confined to a small space, even when it's home. Even I can develop a little cabin fever with the need to take a walk in the big outdoors, which is why I find it easy to imagine walking among the hills just now on a golden sunlit evening, heading back to a cosy cottage. It will all be over soon.
'Here & there' - based upon the style of "This Way & That". These are inspired by summer days spent outdoors in the countryside with a low light casting long shadows and colours that you don't find in the compact cities.
'On yer bike' - based upon the style of "This Way & That". These are inspired by summer days spent outdoors in the countryside with a low light casting long shadows and colours that you don't find in the compact cities.
'Cold Calling' - A winter theme here, set in the English Lake District. I wonder if he'll answer that phone.
'Home Coming' - A timeless scene of a small shepherd boy guiding his sheep homeward during the last rays of the setting sun.
'Cumbrian Twilight' - A classic scene of rural England, specifically Little Langdale in the Cumbrian Lake District.
'Sunset Cottage' - A lovely English cottage with a view to the lakes. Who wouldn't want to stay here?
'Bridge House' - Little Bridge House in Ambleside, Cumbria. Now a National Trust property, this well known 17th Century house has had a varied past, including once housing a family of 8!
