As the summer dips gently into Autumn, the days are getting so short. The clocks have gone back and the trees are in that snoozy stage between wakefulness and sleep. I have been working towards an exhibition with ARTStorm which we are hosting at The Lighthouse in Poole next Spring. Its a big space and under the loose theme of 'Journey' four of our group will be there for three weeks. There is a lot of work to be done. I am aiming to around 6 large new paintings continuing my current 'Travelling Light' project along with some drawing and printmaking along more conventional 'journey' themes. I am working on two paintings in tandem at the moment trying to explore the way light travels through 'insubstantial' objects such as trees. I know trees are substantial but I dont know the word I am looking for. The first is a quite abstract painting
This is the first of the two. I'll post the other one up when its a bit further on.
Still a little bit to do but its essentially as it will be. Very different to my usual paintings but application and construction feels very familiar as I work on it.
Heres a couple of close up sectionsto show how I am building up a dappled light effect.
