Croxby Wheat Fields Oils on watercolour paper 7 x 11 inches
Another study in my series 'Paperworks'. The lovely texture of watercolour paper strengthened with gesso is giving me a lot of pleasure. The luscious oils move beautifully on the surface and when scraped back for 'drawing back into' there are some interesting marks.
I recently painted a vertical format of this scene on canvas board. This landscape format is just another way of composition. There are endless ways of working in art and every day brings me another exciting challenge. I remind myself not to become 'too precious' about my materials. Fear of ruining or spoiling would become a reason to not paint boldly and I would lose the spontaneity of my gestural expression.
It is only paper and paint!
