This week I have begun to work on a series of small oils for Somerset Art Weeks. So far I have begun five of them, none of which are finished. I am finding it quite difficult working in this medium again, using a combination of brush and palette knife. I am using a fast drying medium so that I don’t have to wait weeks for the thick paint to dry. I will post more as they continue ( I hope) to be resolved. They are based on hedgerows, wasteland and overgrown verges. Trying to convey the beauty and chaos of these sites is proving quite a challenge.
