In this work I wanted to portray the young boy playing with the idea of disguise. That ability of children to hold on to the imagined in a complete way. He is both himself and owl boy and it was great fun to portray him. The cadmium red brushstrokes create a vibrant mood.
Owl boy by Annemarie Stanley
Annemarie Stanley’s paintings are worked loosely, with areas of evident brushstroke and luminous colour while other parts are left barely touched. Every painting session explores the fall and depiction of light on form. Annemarie works quickly but will often work on a piece for a long time until she feels that there is a resolution within the painting.
