Joan Eardley

Recently I’ve been experimenting with panoramic photography, creating curved horizons with a limited colour palette (click on the title above to see an example).  Somehow the curves excite me more than a flat line, and the chalky skies have me reaching for a paintbrush…  I’m reminded of paintings like the one above by the Scottish artist Joan Eardley.  I came across Eardley’s work not long after leaving art school and admired her colours, energy and abstraction.  I’m also revisiting the work of Anne Redpath, another Scottish artist on my inspiration list.
