This is a painting from my architectural series of paintings.
In this particular painting I wanted to capture the contrasting light and shadows of a scene of a modernist chair in front of a cool blue swimming pool and views across a bay.
I placed a tree in the foreground which adds a softness to the otherwise straightness of the modern architectural lines of the home.
The blue sea and sky against the turquoise blue of the pool finishes the painting off in a summer feelgood way.

Karen Lynn is an increasingly collectable figurative artist whose work is inspired by the glamour and appeal of the 40's, 50's and 60's; an era that Christian Dior described as the 'Golden Age' of fashion. Stylistically, Lynn's work has been compared to Hopper and Hockney.
Initially training as a fashion designer, Lynn worked as a costumier for the English National Opera before successfully switching into set design, working for many years on a number of iconic feature films, before moving into television and commercials.
In 2001, Lynn turned her attentions to painting in oils. Her wide experience of designing for film, television and theatre provides her with a unique and contemporary viewpoint; not surprisingly, her work has been snapped up by collectors both here and in the US.
Lynn's detailed drawing is complemented by the use of bold strokes, often consisting of colourful and varied characters.
