Painting in progress
And a look at my process
I haven’t stopped painting since my last post. Here’s a little snapshot of some works in progress and below you can see my process.
I often sketch digitally so I can play with colour and composition. Then I might use cut paper to make final decisions. The best thing I’ve learnt, since I started painting again a couple of years ago is that you can paint over anything and start again (this warm terracotta was an insipid creamy buff at first). That’s why a lot of these boards have texture where there was once an abstract paper collage. I like that it adds a bit of interest, since the style is simple and graphic.
Here you can see a bit of The Middle Age of Mrs Eliot, a book I’ve been using as collage for years.
Inspiration is everywhere.
Lucie Rie is one of my favourite ceramicists, so it’s lovely to see my cards at the Kettle’s Yard exhibition shop.
That’s it for now. My cat is hitting me. It seems to be supper time.
Thanks for reading :-)
