|Penyghent acrylics on canvas 50x50cm|
This work is now becoming affected and consumed under some new developments as I move progressively to working with oils and mixed media (acrylic and oil) Its easier to do so now that I am in a self contained studio space. It will be interesting to see how this change is already affecting my work with all three aspects, form, colour and media in a state of flux. Not withstanding that I also want to keep line a strong element in my work, lines drawn covered and redrawn, still remain for me an automatic, gestural and important response to things seen How to do this with oils is interesting for me..
I hope to post some of the new images of work that is currently on the easel in oils by Friday this week; Ive deliberatly tried to keep the subject matter wide. The work is 5 landscapes of Montemor O Novo Evora in Portugal in oils on paper and canvas, 4 landscapes of small villages and suburbs of the the southern Pennines of England in oils and a smaller number of Hebrides paintings in mixed media. (acrylics and oils) I should have some of them completed by then.
