MELANIE MAX SRING SHOW 2/3 & 9/10 APRIL
My Spring Show will be open on the first two weekends in April. I will be showing work that I have produced over the winter and my new series Tidal Lights.
Tidal Lights are influenced by two events that happened in February. A trip to Tresco in the Scilly Isles and the amazing nacreous clouds or mother of pearl clouds that appeared one morning early in the month over the uk.
The Mother of Pearl clouds are very colourful and bare a similarity to the aurora borealis. Seeing them behind broken floating grey clouds really surprised me and has lead me to try to incorporate the colours into my palette.
The Tidal Lights series is in mixed media, highly textured and atmospheric and the sea and low sun dominate with the colours of the suns corona filtering through the clouds.
I hope you like the look of the studies pictured here and will tempt you to come along and take a look at larger work.
