It’s so good to see you all again ‼️
What with lockdown and everything I’ve been missing you
Let me know in the comments what you’ve been up to for the last few months
And what are you looking forward to doing as lockdown gradually eases where you are?
Stay safe! 🍀 Looking forward to hearing your news!
4 fresh bright breezy works for the day that’s in it 🍀
2 new works on canvas in the studio today
4 new works on linen
I think finally I’ve finished this large piece, about 4’x7′
At the same time as working on the big piece stapled to my wooden studio wall, I’ve also been making some small studies on birch panel. These 6, each only 12×16″
The large piece and the small ones are interconnected, both by my process (lifting areas of wet paint in tissue paper, from one work to another, in a type of printing), and also in subject. Although all the works are totally abstract, and as such have no actual subject or representational form, they all come from the idea and challenge that we all face, of the potential destruction of our beautiful environment. The shapes and forms, particularly in the small pieces, for me have echoes of sea and sky, rock and sand, light on water
So delighted to get these two stretched and framed! Hope to be submitting them to CairdeVisual@the Model
Her (150 x 104cm) and Him (130 x 100cm )
These 3 paintings are unusually simple and delicate for me. They were made by transferring some paint, with marks I particularly liked, from canvas onto unprimed birch panels. The image was made by pressing creased tissue paper onto the canvas and then transferring the ‘print’ into the panel. I suppose they are mono prints of sorts.
I’m not sure how I will seal them, probably a coat of oil and cold wax medium when they are fully dry in a few weeks
