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.
Somewhere Out There | Acrylic & Carbon on Paper | 45cm x 45cm
Untitled No. 1 | Acrylic & Carbon on Paper | 40cm x 57cm
Untitled No. 2 | Acrylic & Carbon on Paper with Collage | 40cm x 57cm
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.
Dungeness Inspired; following a visit in very bad weather and making work outdoors (see here) these were made in the studio, using acrylic and watercolour paper. Painted as one on separate sheets 38cm x 28cm. They work together more than as separate items – interesting experiment.
Done during a very blustery visit (tail end of the US storm Henry) – 40mph winds. Had to weigh down the book using stones and pebbles and paint through and around these… more work from the 2 day visit here
