Track through to Box Head.

Editing to a few key components which I think in turn makes it an entity independent of an accurately portrayed view of the Hawke Head peninsula. #hawkehead #refigure #autonomous #independent #edited #reductive #perceived #acrylic #workonpaper #landscape #apaintedlandscape #landscapeart #mikestaniford ...

Armchair Travelling and remembering afternoons making lemoncillo whilst staying in the Greek island of Kefalonia. I can smell those lemons now. Would love to be heading back to that magical island. #armchairtraveller #memories #kefalonia #fiskardo #lemoncillo #greekislands #watercolour #homemade #travellingartist #art #draw #drawing #draweachday #keepdrawing #staycurious #neverstoplooking #mikestaniford ...

From the hills and valleys of Umbria (gouache on paper) to the coastal headland of Cape Cornwall ( acrylic on paper) I shouldn’t have favorites but I do and largely for the memories they bring back. Yes, I’m armchair travelling and mentally planning my next trip. Both works fulfill some of my favorite techniques- loose fluid brushwork and painted on location. Both have angles and lines that take the eye across the page and both make a bold statement with colour. I like to develop paintings with as much energy as I can in the hope the viewer will respond. You’re never sure how things will turn out when you work en plein air but that really is the fun of it. #landscape #landscapepainting #italytrip #umbria #cornwall #cornwallcoast #enpleinair #travel #travellingartist #mixedmedia #mikestaniford ...

Plein air scribbling. It feels like the landscape of the Hawke Head landscape, high up on the ridge above the Tasman Sea is more about geometry, texture and the relationship of shapes and forms. #landscape #landscapeartist #drawinglandscape #draw #drawing #abstracting #amplifying #reducing #relationship #spatial #hawkehead #geometry #monochrome #mikestaniford ...
