Putting layers of opaque paint over an already layered board substrate, my preferred surface for collaging, scraping, sanding back and generally degrading the surface. Many colours applied at random, new and varied colours I would not normally try. Perhaps it could be harmonised with a glaze, but what to choose.
After ‘printing’ with oilstik I worked back into the print with oil pastels and moved the colour around. Then I scraped back in places to get back the lights and added some brights for contrast. Once again line and texture are an important part of the overall effect.
This method adds some new tricks to my tool bag and could hold promise for work in the future. Have to graduate to something larger in due course.
At Level 2 now in the Lockdown scenario – 7 weeks indoors more or less. The country begins to move again.
