I don’t have great skills with photography, and I’m not a master of the appropriate technology, however here is a mixture of edited photos of whole paintings with detailed closeups, in the seemingly random order that my Samsung tablet chooses
These are works by Liz Doyle (that’s for the search engine!) on wooden panels in oil and cold wax medium
The works shown here are ‘evening sky’, ‘territories’ ‘straits’and ‘4 leaves’

    • the colours that appear on my tablet never match the colours I see in my paintings, so I always have to increase the saturation, contrast, brightness and ‘temperature’in photo editor, so I am never sure if viewers are seeing what I think I made!So intriguing, yes, accurate, I don’t know!Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment , best wishes, Liz

  1. Great to see the detail and gain a sense of the physical processes at play in your work – the etching of line, the stickiness(?), of the wax surface etc. [I’m not educated in this area so please forgive my nonsensical turn of phrase.] Many congratulations on the accomplishment of this work; it captivates me.

    • thanks very much Hariod, and also for all your multiple likes just now!These new works in oil and cold wax are my first on panels and I am thoroughly enjoying the rigidity of the surface. The strength and solidity of the substrate and the buttery nature of the wax and oil mixture allow me a great freedom and safety with excited wielding of a palette knife. It sometimes feels as though I am excavating, not just through layers of paint, but also through layers of memory
