80 x 40 cm Prismacolor pencils on pastel board
Is it an abstract or is it a landscape? Can it be both.
My ‘Brick’ series is really starting to head in exciting directions. Over the past few months I have been ‘beavering’ away at a series of coloured pencil paintings that will be framed in the new year. The bricks (below) that I’m working with (from Longford) have been a vital resource, but the time is coming when I will rely less on them and tap into my own imagination.
What is pleasing me is that at last I’m producing work that is personal, distinctive and enjoyable to create. I see a lot of potential, but I’m mindful of the need to keep my work ‘fresh’ and not fall into the trap of ‘rubber stamping’. I hope to pay the Austral brick Company another visit later in the week and add to my ‘brick nursery’. I am also considering introducing mixed media that will provide me with more challenges and more opportunities.
