Recently I offered a long time friend a piece of my art as thanks for being so supportive over the years. She chose a textile piece called ‘Windswept’. I warned her that it was in an exhibition in Brighton UK and unfortunately for her, it sold.
Faced with the dilemma on what to do I decided to paint her a copy. She wanted it slightly larger so this would work well but I had never copied one of my textile pieces as a painting.
Using various acrylic textural mediums I think that the texture of the textile has been captured. I especially like the elongated landscape shape. I am pleased with it. I thought that I would post the two pieces for you to compare.
