What's on my easel this month...
Barely begun, I've just started to build sculptured layers on this one. The sketch is one of an old disused farm lane, that I've painted several times Each time it's told me a different tale, and each painting is completely different from the others. I often make the human habitats inconsequential to the land it's self, and the ruined farm house this lane leads to re enforces the feeling I'm striving for, which is why I think I find this scene so appealing.
I also have a start on a larger and very different view of the same lane. Funnily enough when I was choosing a sketch to work up it didn't even register that I was choosing the same lane from a different perspective!

Rural Geometry, 12x16. Early summer along Carriage Road, the land is flat as a pancake in this stretch, and the farrows created perfect geometry. Now just a few weeks later corn has popped up, creating a totally different look to the fields.
Along Carriage Road 12x16. the other end of Carriage Road is completely different, Delaware Creek has carved the land. It's just a trickle now, but the story is told in undulating land of a much mightier stream in times long past. I've added another couple of glazes to this one since I took this photo, I'm allowed...
Truman and Highbury, this one might still get a few glaze layers. I keep coming back to it. We'll see.
Time for me to get back to work!!! See you at the Westland Show.
