. . . with an artist called Lesley McLaren. My wife loves the latest collection, but until it is uploaded to the web, her daily fix is to look at Lesley’s existing art on the Bay Attic site. But the more she looks, the more she sees and the more she likes. So I asked her to pick three favourites from the BA site and tell us why she likes them.
Blue Noon Giclee Fine Art Print
This painting to me is so cold, and crisp that I can feel snow under my feet and the air condense my breath as I speak. Evoking all this emotion from just looking at a painting, to me is what art is all about, of course with this painting I may be biased as I love the country side in winter. The detail in the foreground with the tempestuous waves crashing on the shore and the battered fence with the birds, makes the painting all the more real. To me the birds seem so unaffected by the powerful breaking waves.
Mysterious and moody this painting with clouds angry and threatening rain. What I like best about this painting is the brush strokes in the foreground, they seem to emphasise the glimpse of colour left in the day, before being swallowed by the change in weather.
Highland cattle in the twilight. I love the Autumn colours of the landscape and the ruggedness of the cows, with their brown, thick, shaggy coats. The cattle minding their own business as a insignificant hare runs across their field. I don’t think much bothers these regal creatures.
