Oil on Paper

New from the studio, oil and beeswax on stretched paper. The surface of the paper is primed with PVA and layers of gesso. I began with the drawing in charcoal and pencil with thin layers of paint ade transparent to reveal the under drawing detail. I also used oils mixed with cold wax to push and drag over the surface.

Inspired by the surroundings of large boulders and rocks on a walk near Scar mountain a few weeks back.
