The NHS, and all the other key workers have been playing a vital part in keeping the world ticking through this difficult time, so I decided to join many others in painting rainbows to put in my window as a way to say a big THANK YOU to all the amazing workers.
I thought that the delicate effect of watercolour would be the perfect medium to create my rainbows with. I did one basic, ‘simple but effective’ rainbow, with a calligraphy style ‘thank you’ in the centre:
I then created a ‘drip effect’ rainbow. The drips are designed to represent the tears and suffering caused to so many families, but the cheerful colours give hope that we will overcome this pandemic:
I hope you like these paintings, and, once again, a big a thank you to everyone doing their bit during this time!
