Project Description

Joyful by Steve Smith

During the creation of this painting the feeling that came to me was so “Joyful” that I wanted to capture it in form and colour.
Adding to the texture and colour, are my more contemporary style of painting. Some design elements overlap and the colours used are meant to go with the
background – but the background is very intriguing and for me at least, I can get lost in the movement and flow of the background alone.

Guided by the creative force of Raven it inspired me to use his image to show on this painting.
