New Year = New Work

I am now concentrating on my practical work. I aim to intensify the production of work, focussing on processes, becoming immersed in spontaneity and expression. It is not the outcomes that are important but exploration of materials.

This is the first piece produced. I enjoy how the white acrylic soaks into the dye absorbing the colour to give a pastel effect and the wet of the dye makes the acrylic bubble and disintegrate. I feel that the image is too literally recognisable a landscape.

This second piece is a bit looser and more abstract in appearance but still recognisable as landscape in subject. The clumsiness needs to be addressed so more layers my be applied later.

Two more smaller paintings, really enjoying the creative process.

Is is so much easier to work on this scale, composition and application od media is much more fluid.
