This painting is part of ‘The Light’ series. It measures 80 x 80 cm and is based on the landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fenlands. The effect of depth and translucency is achieved by a process of layering and erasing. Paint has been thinned with a glazing medium,  liberally applied with large brushes then partially removed with an assortment of old ‘T shirts’ and cloths. The parallels with stratification, sedimentation, accretion, erosion geology are potentially poetic yet alas coincidental………….ah, but are they?
