About this work of Art
Market Day is an original abstract painting by Diane Whalley. Several layers of acrylic paint are applied to the canvas with mark making and oil pastel detailing. Presented in a white wood floating frame.
Bright colours are used in this piece to represent the flamboyance and the richness of market day activities – the hustle and bustle of visitors, the excitement from the sellers and the colourful products and produce on offer – often taking place under swathes of cream canvas. There have been many visits to markets in the UK and across Mediterranean countries which inspired the boldness and colour choice of Market Day. Even the little paint dribble plays it’s part in the fluidity of passing through the market and finding the unexpected.
