Sunrise Oils on gessoed 140lb paper 10 x 12 inches On Hold for Exhibition
A sunlit shore. Early morning light.
A second painting which had a radical re-work.
This time I wanted to add more life to the scene.
It can be a risky business destroying parts of a painting to create a new piece.
However, there is no room for fear as the only way is to get on with it.
I can easily ruin a painting by adding paint over paint and overworking it into mud.
This piece was scraped back several times before I saw some progress.
Abstracted marks, paint skimmed across the surface and highlights from the sun
began to bring the painting to life. No need to worry, a new work is born.
