Figures in water

More recent Andrew Holmes paintings of bathers will be exhibiting with the Panter and Hall Gallery next week at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, London.

Generations – oil on panel – 50 x 50 cms

‘Generations’ is one piece in a collection Andrew has been developing since ‘boy bathing’. Working on a group of themed studies of figures in water, Andrew is using a limited palette, focusing on simple compositions while exploring the application of the medium onto wood panel or paper.

The images are derived from a variety of subjects observed in different locations, by interpreting the way the light interacts with water and a figure in a particular setting, the hope is for each painting to achieve a sense of it’s own place and time while still contributing to the group as a whole.
