& 3 pieces c. A4 sized (32 x25cm)
from a group of 11 works on paper in gold and magenta oil with cold wax medium just completed.
An experiment included in the process this time of painting a layer of crimson house paint ( matt emulsion) above the gesso priming layer and below the first layer of magenta oil and wax. I am pleased with the result that the scraped lines have a more solid red effect than if they scraped right through to the paper because the emulsion is so opaque and has such dense coverage

dark orchids

the next (final?) stage of the painted over panels

image

they started like this, with a new bottom layer (over the previously painted panels) or rich alizarin crimson

image

then powder pigment, mark making, blues and turquoises laid over with a squeegee

image

image

then finally a few more layers of darker colours and a touch of gold

2 details, one from each panel

small works on paper from the last couple of days
I have yet to master the skill of getting a whole set off the board without tearing the paper when removing the tape
but I always get some I’m happy with
Some of the best of these will be framed, hopefully for a summer show in Dublin
The second, grey and gold ones, are called ‘Irish Gold, weather series’ !
