Yesterday’s trees in three colours became a little vignette of a swampland. I’ve been debating with myself about whether the colours on the right of the painting have gone a bit sludgy. But given the subject matter, I think that may be appropriate. I wanted to capture the mistiness of the humid environment.
I’m still working on commissions after my exhibition – last one is on the easel at the moment and then I need to work on upcoming exhibitions. But to make sure my work stays fresh and keeps developing, I’m working on small studies in between. The learning in these little sketches is immensely valuable.
