Pushing on through

One of the small works 'Pink scented water'


In my last post I talked about the next painting I would be working on. I don't know what happened but that one came off the easel and an mdf board replaced it.


In between painting my mid sized paintings I work on small 5" square mixed media on paper. These are such fun to do, I sit them around the studio and use them to inspire the larger paintings.




'The sea upon these hills'



I started work on 'The sea upon these hills' two weeks ago it has been a tough one. I wanted to take my time and think about the process carefully. The colour palette I used was GOLDEN alizarin crimson, cobalt blue, cadmium yellow medium, black and white. I also used charcoal and pencil.


It has changed drastically through the days with the aim to produce a work that is capturing the essence of the subject without fussy marks, where every colour stands independently against it's neighbour with balance and tone.


Through perseverance and determination I have reached my goal. Painting is hard, abstract painting is very hard but it's worth all the tension to create it when you achieve something right.
