The Red Lamb Danced Happily Across the Meadow, Jane McKay, acrylic on canvas, 60x80cm, 2010
An element of whimsy makes painting an amusing activity. This work from my exhibition at Elements Art Gallery in Perth also featured the work entitled ‘Sunshine Warmed the Six-Legged Cow’.
The Red Night Sky Held Promise of a Glorious Tomorrow, Jane McKay, acrylic on canvas, 90x140cm, 2010
On a warm summer day the evening sky is awash with brilliant colours that stretch across the Indian Ocean out towards Africa. Hues of pink, red, purple and orange stream across the sky, creating a changing landscape of colour as the sun drops below the horizon.
Translucent Rain Washed Leisurely Down the Red Glass Windows, Jane McKay, acrylic on canvas, 90x180cm, 2010
Something about the vibrancy and immediacey of red draws me back again and again to explore and experiment with this colour. It’s intensity and depth is mesmerising.
