Trail Series

‘Sheep Farmer’

70x70cm

When out sketching in the open landscape today I met a sheep farmer who was walking up the hill towards where I was stood doing some sketches. He stopped to ask what I was painting and I told him I was just doing some abstracted sketches of what I’m seeing. He wondered if there was a market for that and the conversation went on to his days in school and how he hated it.. I responded with the same feeling and said how I loved the art class though. He was out walking up the hills looking for his sheep and asked if I’d seen any on my trail. That’s was it really..Its the small things..

This is my new painting ‘The Sheep Farmer’

and today’s experience prompted me to title my new series of paintings

Abstract In Progress – Part 1

Pushing and pushing this painting till I’m happy with it.. a real challenge with this one I have to say but we seem to be coming to some agreement somewhere at the minuit..who knows..

Tree circles are very much embed in my mind especially since my hike yesterday..too many trees have been wiped out in the past few little weeks in this place I love so much..

 

Palette

This new painting I’ve just begun today has set out with undertones of warm earth colours. Burnt sienna and raw umber mixed across the canvas with cadmium reds and yellows. The light is mixed with lemon yellow and naples yellow and white..

This is only the first layer, the next one will change everything.

Watch it unfold..
