Just a peak of work I am painting and developing at the moment for Spring 2019.
This will be loose multilayered work with words linking to the experience of this Spring Cleeve Hill Landscape. One of my favorite views up to the 'Lone Tree' that braces itself ,yielding to the weather as it comes in across the valley.
A little way to go yet but looking promising to me. I intend to leave areas of the seed of life pattern showing as well as some words written through the paint layers.
These are the oil colours all ready to apply. For my regular students and people who ask me about how i use colour, these are mixed from the darker colours up to the lighter ones and within this eac colour relates to another hence they become a family of colours creating a balance to the whole picture plane.
To learn more about how I mix and use colour do look back at previous Blog posts or perhaps join me at Hawkwood college, Stroud 6/7th July for a two day mixed media Landscape painting course now booking www.hawkwoodcollege.co.uk
much love and I will post the finished piece very soon...
