Been recently experimenting with layering with washes of different shades, adding lines (with carbon), some with collage of off-cuts of old watercolour paper – deciding on how to move along with the development of the work.

Untitled No. 3 | Acrylic & Carbon on Paper with Collage | 40cm x 57cm

The second of two experiments, layer upon layer over a collage of work (an old Matisse calendar!). The challenge was finding the image within the layers and developing and uncovering the motif as the process went on.

 

 

Collaged some old images from an expired calendar, over-painted, scratched, over-painted, drew, marked – the cycle continued for 10+ visits, ending with some marks that became the final landscape…

Made in the studio.  Acrylic with ‘Liquitex Gloss Medium’ and graphite on Arches watercolour paper.  15cm x 28cm.  A gift for my nephew.
