Acrylic on canvasboard 16x16 inches (40x40cm).
In 2018 I am exploring new subject material. What I learn may feed back into my more representational work in due time. Most abstract pieces are worked intuitively, with no rigidly planned composition. I aim to include texture and metallics; most works will have a fair degree of experimentation in them. They may be in either oils or acrylics. My up-to-date pieces are usually shown, and for sale at Original-Art-Under100.com.
Paintings are available directly from the platforms/galleries mentioned above; but can also be reserved/purchased from the artist via Paypal invoicing. In all cases, the work is dispatched directly from the painter. Any queries can be made to sales [at] christinederrick.com.
Christine has painted for several decades, but the greater volume of her activity has been since 2005. She joined evening classes in the 1970's, starting with oils and tackling mainly local landscape features. While in search of a mental break from oils, she was encouraged to try pastels, since these are another opaque medium. Despite exploring other avenues such as acrylic and semi-abstracted styles, she has come back again to pastels and alternates these with oils when she wishes. Subject- matter has varied widely, with florals occupying a long stretch of time through the 90's and 2000's. At this point (2016) a body of skyscape work has been forming, in both media. She belongs to very few groups, preferring to do the bulk of her creativity alone. Paintings can be found online at dailypaintWorks.com, and Original-Art-Under100.com. Christine lives in England, UK.
