After the storm
A limited edition print from a mixed media painting by Orkney artist Jane Glue
printed on C-Type Matt
The inspiration for this picture was a stroll along the shoreline at Newark in Deerness. It was a cold winters day and the wind was blowing the sea on to the beach making the seaweed swirl amongst the gulls which were diving in and out of the waves.
Apart from producing paintings during this time, I was also attending an evening silver jewellery class. This inspired me to cut out some bird shapes from a copper strip that I bought from the local plumber. I glued them on to the painting and added on more paint to give the affect of a storm.
