  • About this work of Art

    Maggie LaPorte Banks.’ I saw it all’ , is a follow on from my recent series, Visions of paradise , based on the Gota storm Dana in a part of Spain I know well. I wanted to experiment with a different colour palette, using yellow to identify with the sunshine normally there. I used cadmium yellow toned down with blue . As Lee Krasner said ” I don’t know why but yellow rarely appears in my Painting’s, I find it a difficult colour to use.
    It is an unframed canvas , landscape format 122 x 92 cm .

    Maggie LaPorte Banks artist comments: “My Art is routed in landscape, influenced by childhood memories of Donegal, by Lough Swilly, surrounded by dark mountains. I spent ten years living near to the Brecons Beacons and painting using a tent as a studio in all seasons. For over thirteen years I was an artist in residence in a cottage on the end of Cape Cornwall overlooking the Brisons at different times of the year. Therefore, I have a vast amount of passion for the skies, sea and mountains which I love to involve within my paintings. My recent works have been developed from these roots and are becoming much more abstract, focusing on ‘the essence of place’ through the colours I use and emotions I have created. I work mainly in oils, acrylic and mixed media, sometimes adding unique materials such as sand, carborundum, iron fillings and many other products I feel the work dictates.
