Episode 4

27 April 2020

The unexpected outcome this week is that my Spring Abstracts and Moonlight paintings drew me back to rework them. I just love this process. It is so intuitive and all consuming. The Spring Abstracts were started about 18 months ago when I was new to the cold wax medium. I now felt they seem too structured so I tried to be more loose and organic in my approach. Not sure if they are finished yet. I am loving the richness of the colours. My challenge was to focus on pure rich blues, turquoise and pinks in these.

The Moonlight ones below were rushed for an Art Society of Tasmania themed black and white exhibition last year. They had some lovely marks but I wanted to add colour. So this is where they went.

My printed session hasn’t happened but it will. Always so much to do.

  1. Is this how I comment? I got confused when no tried to use the comment button at the end.

    Anyway, the pictures look good. They’re really atmospheric, lovely. It’s amazing how much you changed them.
