I knew it might happen!
Another visit to this painting.
...from this rework yesterday.
I thought I had finished, but when I went
back this morning I decided the patches
of yellow/gold were too bold.
Some taming needed to be done.
Some readers might think I am
too harsh with my work.
Destroying reasonable pictures.
But it is part of my process.
I never feel sad.
It is time now to let the painting rest.
I have turned it around
and given it a title.
‘Time knows no beginning or end’
There are lots of interesting
shapes and textures.
Layer on layer, scraped away,
rolled and over-painted.
It has been a long journey.
On the clothes line...
Drying on the line,
these little paintings will be taken to the
Gainsborough Artisan Fair
on 14 December.
They are useful warm-up exercises
and are made with oils and cold wax medium.
The sheet of Arches oil paper is taped off
and transparent oils are used at first.
Opaque oils are used later to add interest,
with scraping back and drawing to finish.
The pictures will be cut apart when dry.
The mixing table.
Time to finish.
Enough for today.
That’s all for now.
Until next time...
Thank you for visiting
