an extra layer


Just reworked these 2 with a few more marks and a layer of creamy coloured transparent oil and wax mixture

They are each 80cm x 100cm and are part of the ‘Oceans – a tipping point?’ series from last week

I think they are much better for the extra later.  What do you think?

Here they are as they were before:


Cold Wax Book

I get so many questions about Cold Wax Medium ( which I use in all my paintings)

Well here is your opportunity to find all the answers

A new book is being published by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin and if you’re quick you could join the campaign and pick up some great perks – maybe you’d like an advance signed copy of the book?

the first 5 stages of work on 3 canvases in my studio this morning
the initial trigger was twofold: Diebenkorn’s notes to himself about how to go about making a painting

https://www.royalacademy.org.uk/article/diebenkorn-ten-rules

and there was a powercut

so I went with ‘tolerate chaos’ and also forced myself to not care about the first appearances of ‘prettiness’ and I didn’t ‘search for a subject’
