So these are a pair of little 6 x 6″ panels. I have a little fixation with texture, so I had a vague idea to do something with collage and see how it worked.
Where I live the rapeseed fields are coming into their own now, dotting the hills either side of the vale with their vibrance. I love their yellow and what they do to the landscape, but not so keen on the sneezing.
The yellow in my paintings are cut from a magazine. I glued and painted and scraped and scrubbed back. I don’t know what I’m doing, but it was fun. I don’t know where this will end up. I don’t even know if I like it. Actually I just looked up from my desk to look at them – no, I don’t like them. It could be the colour – I’m working with acrylics and the colour shifts quite a bit, which is why I always go back to oils. I may even put some oil on top of these.
Time for dinner!
