Another Re-working

Seeing lots of these at the moment.

Blue Tit

This painting has been stacked in my studio for some time, so I ecided to work some wax into it. As it was an oil painting on stretched canvas, this meant cutting the canvas off and glueing it onto a board before I could work wax into it - the substrate needs to be rigid. I've read somewhere that the wax is supposed to go onto a porous surface. I hope this holds..

Old Hedgerow

Pushing oil paint around on homemade canvas boards.
 I ought to have stopped at this stage!

First for a While.

I haven't posted for a while, and it's about time I did. So, as I sit here waiting for Sara to pick me up, I thought I'd put this recent encaustic piece on the blog. I like the idea of nuance and suggestion. I like having one foot in a semi abstract camp, and the  other in a more representational one.
Badly phrased, but it's 16.42 on a Friday evening, and I want to go home.
Right. She's here, and I'm off.
