Wet and wintery.
Slow Thaw Oils on gessoed 140lb watercolour paper 9 x 13 inches
Abstract qualities of weather and wet fields are the focus of this piece.
A hedgerow after a week of rain.
There are days when an unfinished painting needs to rest
before the decision is made on its future.
If I add more detail it will become tighter and I like the loose, sketchy appearance.
Also the smudged, rubbed down bits give a soggy look to the field.
The temptation to fiddle is the road to ruin. I will leave it alone.
