Artwork Description

After watching a few blockbuster English World War II movies recently, I was inspired to paint what, for me, represents this period of time: the famous White Cliffs of Dover. I relied solely on childhood memories, having visited often in the past, and added the blue birds to give not only depth to the painting but as an echo to the song that was made famous by Vera Lynn, who was an English singer and sweetheart of the British troops, whom she often entertained during the war. I used textured paste to add a 3D feel to the top of the cliffs and used very thick paint to add further texture to the canvas.
