Coffee With The Nomads
Medium: oil on canvas
This painting is a part of a group of paintings inspired by a camping trip at the end of last year. I wasimpressed by how inclusive and accessible the caravan park was and how people of all walks of life wereusing them. This included families, school groups, older couples and young adults. It also impressed uponme how beneficial getting away from our urban environment and communing with nature can be as well ashow great that feeling of being on holiday, soaking up the sun and relaxing is. This painting is of a scene at acoffee shop with the important task of navigating the journey towards the next destination for a couple ofgrey nomads is taking place. I quite enjoy portraying scenes of everyday life and evoking narratives fromthem and enjoy the challenge of painting from life and capturing the effects of light and colour upon a scenebefore me.
