This beautiful abstract piece depicts the light reflecting in the watery colours found in the sandstone rockpools on the shoreline at Corrie.
Technique "To begin, I visit the location and study the micro colours. These are then replicated in my studio by layering acrylic paints and other mediums in different shaped vessels to a recipe I have found through experimentation. I then pour the paint onto the prepared canvas.
The painting emerges from a combination of my original thoughts about the piece and the serendipity of the paint mix. I have to respond to the process rather than fully controlling it; even the temperature has a part to play
The approach and creative process is a complete contrast to my landscape paintings."
Acrylic on box canvas, ready to hang.
