Liz Gray Art News – August 2021


Amid the turmoil in the world, I hope that you’re having a good month!

I always love seeing my paintings hanging in their new homes. One of the works sold at the recent Applecross Art showing in Sorrento, is Scarlet Tide, featured here in the striking home of Fabrizio and Rhonda Bruno. They weren’t afraid to use colour and have matched the reds perfectly to great effect!

Creamy yellow tones in the centre of the blooms in Peonies at Midnight are successfully picked up in the natural shades of this elegant interior:

When doves cry, a work from about two years ago, hangs in the fascinating home of Paul and Kerry Miller. Once again, complimentary oranges and blues really set things off!

Copper painting workshop

A delightful winter, warming night was had by all who attended my Copper painting workshop on Tuesday evening, 3 August. Participants learnt painting and engraving techniques for working on copper plates. We designed and painted a Byzantine style figure, seen below. Each attendee left with their own ready to hang artwork and many were surprised to discover their artistic abilities! The night was made more magical with delicious refreshments and traditional German glühwein made over a fire. Andreas and Amke Buse from Applecross Art were fantastic hosts. ☺
