Work in Progress – ‘Above Dalwhinnie’, Acrylic & Pastel, 80 x 80 cm

I’ve been working on this 80 x 80 cm painting for the last few days.  It is as it says above ….work in progress and has a fair amount of painting still to been done on it.  Once again I’m using several of my smaller paintings as a starting point but I’m trying to develop the marks, the quality of the paint.  I’ve been using heavy body acrylic paint mixed with a gloss medium.  It gives the paint surface more texture but where it is laid down quite thin, it is somewhat translucent, allowing colours underneath to show through.

This painting is already moving away from the earlier smaller pieces and I envisage it changing further still.  This said, although the marks are bolder and chunkier, I want to try and retain much of the subtlety of colour and atmosphere that is an important part of my work.  Getting the balance right is going to be a difficult but interesting problem.
