Paintings of the Everyday by Carolyn Blake Painter
My recent paintings of the Everyday are about travel and are called 'The Unchanging Traveller'. This particular series comes from regular train journeys from Birmingham. As a traveller I am seeing snatches of images, sometimes as the train is moving, or at others when the train has stopped. They are all 15cm x 15cm and painted in oils on board. I often work on a square format because it takes away the landscape / portrait associations, which also makes the compositions more interesting.
