This is a continuation of exploring large scale paintings and working with oil paint on paper. I’ve also been paying a lot of attention to clouds, especially over the farmland in my area. There’s something very compelling about the combination of the two that draws me in and that’s what I hope to capture.
The painting done here is 22″ x 30″ and was painted on Arches pastel paper. I’m finding these experiences to be somewhat challenging as I am working flat on a large table and using large brushes. There is an adjustment for me to find a coordination and rhythm. However, at the same time I feel a sense of freedom and new connection with the paint by having the ability to move it around over such a large area.
Most importantly, I’m having fun and look forward to continuing with this process and seeing where it leads.
