seated woman in red
oil pastel on card (16.5cm x 14cm)
You may know that just recently I've been working on both monochrome gouache works and more colour-filled oil pastel works. It's interesting for me to work in different media with quite a separate approach - yet at the same time feel this is very much my work. How that happens cannot be easily explained, I suppose it comes through experience and just knowing when something feels right or not. It has taken me years of work, but I do feel I am more able to know when something feels right - and it's that 'got it' moment that I am always striving toward. If something does not feel right to me, regardless of what anyone else might think, it does not get a public 'showing'. That might seem tough on the 'almosts' but that's how it is - I only wish to offer my very best work.
gouache on Fabriano paper - this is the largest of the recent series: 30.3cm x 24.5cm
I hope you may enjoy seeing the full selection of new work tomorrow at 2pm (uk time).
