Emma's Instagram

Last year I resolved to produce paintings as a gifts for my close friends, near and far. An old photography colleague and dear friend of mine lived on a beautiful historic street during our time at St Andrews. I used one of her Instagram photos as a reference to explore a loose impressionistic technique that suits single-sitting painting projects.

I used Emma's Instagram photo as a reference and painted with acrylics on canvas sheet across 6 hours. I aimed to explore the technique of 'split complementary' colours to achieve a bright, vibrating quality to the yellow birch leaves.
