Acrylic & Mixed Media 100 x 30 cm
I posted the detail of this last week, and it’s finished! I’m very pleased with it, and think it’s one of my best so far. I love the sense of wide open space in Bude, and think this work captures that.
I made a decision recently to return to using collage and other media in my paintings, as it gives a very lively surface which I very much like and which seems to suit my subjects. I like leaving an element of the collage uncovered, too – it’s a reminder of the origins of the painting materials, and also, it occurred to me that it mirrors a little how the landscape is composed – of bits and pieces of different substances. And that, when you look, often you think you see faces or writing or unexplained marks in natural forms.
I hope you like this, and Happy Weekend to you.
NB. Image size. In the light of warnings about unscrupulous people Out There who steal other people’s paintings, and pass them off as their own, I’ve made the decision to limit the image size. Apologies if this disappoints. If you’d like to see a particular picture in more detail, please get in touch, and I’ll see what can be arranged. Thanks.
