The first is using some little wooden tiles I have had for a while. They keep being reinvented but I am enjoying working on a small scale. More intimate and better for exploring relationships within series. I am also enjoying just working with paint again. Just keeping to three colours helps keep things simple.
The second is mixed media with layers of paper underpinning a series of works based on the verticals of trees in winter. Using white acrylic and ink along with tissue paper, a wintery feel materialises. A little suggestion of winter berries and some machine stitch for texture and to give some additional line detail and the deal is done.
Below are a sample of work in progress.
