Pymoor Fen

DSCF1137
In nature time is always occupied; endlessly engaged, transforming surfaces, altering appearances….. staining and corroding, layering and revealing, cleansing and encasing.

This image uses successive layers of cold wax, allowing for heavy impasto and fine incisions with a variety of tools and instruments. It is based directly on the landscape of the Fens seen within a ten mile radius of Ely cathedral. Most days I am out on my bike, cycling through this landscape in all weathers…I stop to draw, take photographs and just allow the scenes to etch into my memory.
