What or who was your major influence? Reply emma cownie December 2, 2017 Thank you – I have gone through phases. It used to be I’d only look at dead artists for inspiration (Post-Impressionist like Gauguin and Fauvists like Andre Derain, and I used to love Robert Bevan and others from the Camden Town Group) but more recently I have been more influenced by living American contemporary realist painters particularly Christopher Benson and Mitchell Johnson. I like their use of bright colour and treatment of forms so that they are semi-abstract at times. Light and colour are always important to me. Reply Alexis Rose December 2, 2017 Congratulations on the book release. Reply emma cownie December 3, 2017 Thanks Alex Reply annabellefranklinauthor December 3, 2017 I would love your book but can’t afford the shipping cost – is there anywhere else I can get it apart from that one site? Reply emma cownie December 3, 2017 I agree the shipping costs are high. I am planning to buy a load and sell them myself to people in UK. I am assuming the postage isn’t so bad if you are in the USA. I’ll keep you posted. Reply annabellefranklinauthor December 3, 2017 Thanks! I have the same problem ordering author copies of my book – for some reason I can only order them at cost price from America and the shipping costs are prohibitive. It’s actually cheaper for me to get them for the sale price on amazon.co.uk! emma cownie December 4, 2017 That’s useful tip, thanks Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
