A celebration of a new season in fresh new hues of green in a waterside scene of budding trees.
I have great respect for watercolourists and wanted to try my hand at water mediums. In contrast to how I use my oil paints as texture and line, I now concentrated more on the fluidity of the medium and its relationship and interaction with the canvas in an application. In this medium, I am lead by the natural formation of shapes that I plan but which, with the help of water on the support, largely informs the composition. I find this a beautifully organic and spontaneous medium. My choice for acrylic ink instead of watercolour was because I prefer the original lines to stay intact after first application because I do not want to shift and manipulate the medium to suit my view but rather be informed by it.
