Painting : : Growth

A closer look at painting, ‘Growth’ 100cm x 100cm, Oil, Mixed Media on Canvas

I use beeswax in a lot of my paintings and here I mixed it into a thick opacity with the oils. Also on the surface of this painting I incorporated the found little pieces of the forest floor including pine needles, twigs and some sand. The colours and thickness of foliage from a Summer turning into Autumn is probably my favorite time of year. These great long evenings allow me to spend more time getting lost, finding new trails and exploring new possibilities of how I can bring these experiences back to the studio.

On show next week at Signal Arts Centre, Bray, Co. Wicklow
