Landscape Featuring Queen Anne's Lace

Penny McGrath's avatar Penny McGrath

This was the final effort of a long series of Queen Anne's Lace paintings. The sheer size and unusual dimensions of the canvas presented a real compositional challenge. I created the composition with its main lace focus making a kind of “S” shape through the middle right of the canvas. I played it against a rather subtle design of rocks to leave the emphasis on the lace. The colors are wonderful though difficult to appreciate from the JPEG since the canvas is so large.
