Art Description

Painting: Ink, Gesso, shellac, Wax on Wood.

This painting was created using light fast acrylic ink and traditional gesso ground on birch.

It was inspired by a process of walking and running in the Hertfordshire countryside during the autumn and winter period. In the early morning, the sky seemed almost sepia as the night turned to day. The hedgerows glowed golden in the gentle gloom.

I hope that viewers will be able to drift and dream in the space of the sky.

I work with traditional gesso ground because it is an incredibly sensitive and responsive surface. I use sandpaper, wood carving tools and wire wool to push the ink into the gesso surface. Even the finest of marks show up.
