First few layers on New Years Day
A blue grey base coat. Then taped. Then turquoise above, 2 greens below. Some yellow powder pigment dusted over the bottom half. Random diagonal marks with the squeegee edge. Removed tape. More tomorrow.
Good start to 2016 🙂

First time back in the studio after returning from Wales
Started 2 canvases each one metre square
Tape and paint and more tape and more paint
Will add dark tree silhouettes after Christmas
Wishing everyone a happy peaceful holiday
