The 6×6 oil on paper paintings are a daily meditation, leading me into my subject while keeping me open to possibilities. The last two days took me into a nearly impenetrable thicket of trees and scrub, defined by color and line. It was an exciting trek, even though it’s mostly through my imagination. Enjoy.
Technical painting notes: The paintings are on rag watercolor paper primed with shellac front and back. I used Liquin Impasto medium and original Liquin extensively, applying the color primarily with a palette knife. A base coat of abstract color was applied, with some removal of the wet paint with a silicone scraper. When the base layer was dry (usually the following day) I worked into the image again, adding color and refining the details.
these are great
Thank you. Coming from someone who has mastered the smaller format and ideosyncratic view, it is praise indeed!
How nice of you to say such kind words! Thanks!
I really love the autumn colours in these, awesome 🙂
Thank you Gretl.
