I have had a productive day in the studio, arranging, reflecting, adding and removing to develop the work further.
Oil paint on ceramic tile.
Oil paint and graphite on paper.
I knocked back the vibrant colours with a thin glaze of zinc white to give a good ground to continue work on. The piece, top right, I prepared the ground with graphite powder to take to the shoreline along with other prepared papers to experience the natural elements. I have arranged them in this format to see how they work as a panelled piece. I think this is working but I would like to play around with the arrangement.
Oil paint on aluminium.
I added a thin glaze of Sap Green to the French Ultramarine and Purple Lake it is beginning to allude to my subject.
Oil paint on plywood and burlap.
This is my first attempt of putting oil paint on burlap. It has gone on a bit patchy, the surface is rough and uneven and grabs the pigment. It is a thin glaze of Purple Lake. I will put another coat on when dry and see what happens. I think the plywood offsets the burlap well when placed together.
Landscape genre is a large subject. There has been a shift in my work from appearing to look like the landscape to alluding to it. The introduction of assemblage is an exciting new element within the work, each panel tells you different things. The subject matter remains important.
Today I have been working hard on this drawing which is the corridor at UWE Bower Ashton Bristol.
