Today’s Art (7th October 2015)

Today’s painting is based on a dream that I had a couple of hours beforehand. Part of this dream involved taking a taxi ride along Portsdown Hill (which overlooks Portsmouth, giving you a beautiful view of the city). Anyway, in the dream, I suddenly noticed that the city was filled with large palm trees.

Since I’d forgotten to consciously memorise the landscape whilst I was dreaming, I’ve probably made countless errors in this painting (I also used a fair amount of artistic licence with regard to the colour scheme too). On the plus side, the Spinnaker Tower seems to be in roughly the right place though.

As a blog exclusive, I’ll also provide the “work in progress” lineart for this painting too.
