Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic, Pastel on Canvas.

As this work progressed, the marks and the media I combine create exciting and interesting effects. It could be acrylic washes, ink, water, charcoal, oil pastel, or all of them!
My process is completely intuitive; I don’t plan an image and I don’t have a picture in mind before I start a painting.
When I work, there’s no dividing line between what I’m doing and what the painting is becoming. But I can sense when the work is almost complete – when all it needs is just one final line or colour. Sadly, sometimes the entire work is spoilt, and there is no “control z” command to reverse the process.

Part of the creative process is change, my view of a picture changes as I look at it over time. At a critical point I have to recognise when a work is finished, but something bugged me about this one - there was something more that I could not see at the time. Earlier this week I did a bit of refining using a small brush and a light green that was already present. Slowly I saw someting else: ghostlike figures drifting into the mist-like distance. Now it definitely has more depth and a focal point.
