Static, 41cm x 35cm, oil and acrylic on canvas 2015

I was painting this little plein air work on a rock shelf as the light was dying behind me and I had a strong feeling that I wanted my acrylic abstract underpainting to come forward and sit on the picture plane and play a greater role in how the work was read. It didn’t really fit with the rest of my work at the time but it sat in my studio and intrigued me for around two years. Now, in the final months of 2017 its how I work.
