It was good to be back in the studio painting last couple of days, after nearly three weeks of a horrible chest infection picked up on holiday in Venice.
These are two small works in acrylic and Inktense stick on canvas board I finished today. I’m hoping to produce a few more before Norfolk Open Studios in 10 days, so I’ll have a few affordable pieces available aside from recently framed collagraph prints. I admit I’ve been panicking a bit wondering if I’d be well enough to prepare in time!
As with much of my recent work, these are inspired by Norfolk’s Saltmarsh Coast and I’ve deliberately kept to a limited palette of two acrylic colours plus my favourite Inktense colour, which I think adds to their atmosphere. I love the way the Inktense works with the canvas grain when I use it with lots of water.
Still thinking up titles.
