I thought it would be good to capture my painting process in a series of stages. The painting process is really only half of my practice as the compositional work and subject matter is worked out before in a process that has gradually revealed itself over the course of the last few years.. I will write more about this process later in the year.
More of the background filled in. I always try to work from dark to light but sometimes I just need some light…
It’s great to get back into the studio. Having several panels ready to go means that I can work on two or three pieces at the same time. This helps me to stay fresh, as soon as things are stalling on one painting I can move to another. Strange business painting!
Late last year I decided to try a little Lino cut. A little clumsy, but there is something about the printed mark however it is made that I just love.
