We watch as the little girl standing under the tree reaches out to touch the bark. I was trying to capture her curiosity and wonder about the tree and the natural world around her. How the light falls across the scene onto the edge of her dress and the fields behind her.
Parkland 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.
