I’ve been experimenting with abstract art and to get a finished piece that you are pleased to look at is not as easy as it seems. This 10″x8″ canvas has been through a number of incarnations before arriving here as ‘Summer Heatwave’.

It was created during the heatwave of 2022 when a plume of hot, Saharan air engulfed the country for a few days, breaking the British maximum temperature record by exceeding 40C, making it a good excuse to stay indoors and paint.
