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?

Red Fen (40cm x 75cm x 4cm): This is an abstract painting based on the Fenland landscape. The layers of intense translucent deep red pigment are surrounded and bordered by emerald greens. This paint is applied with a soft stippling technique and the transitions of tone. almost imperceptible. The image has a restrained emotional power and is influenced by the work of the abstract expressionists.
