Eight Maids A Milking
The eighth day of Christmas was painted during one of four live streaming events broadcast in November and December of 2020. This particular painting was created in the third one along with two others. You can see its creation on my 12 Days of Christmas live painting stream.
Just three colours and an almost infinite array of choices! This painting features a figure of eight paint application (if you watch the video in the link above you can see me painting it). That’s where the refence to eight comes from (sneaky right?)… Over a few days though the painting did its own thing and what we have is the most beautiful collection of blended paint forms and a melted quality to the structures. It’s jaw-droppingly beautiful.
The painting measures 80cm x 80cm.
The art work was hand stretched around a seasoned timber frame so that the painting goes all the way round the edges. It has a wonderful texture thanks to the way the paint layers are built up and it comes with full certification.
