This slideshow shows the stages of Wood Between The Worlds through various evolutions and reworking over the period of a year. Since I was working almost entirely from imagination and memory and trying to create a suggested place rather than a real one it involved a lot of ‘feeling’ my way, stepping back and waiting for the colours and forms, the marks and tones to find their places. Every time I thought I might have finished, I realised there was another area that needed refining and rebalancing. This painting had in reality been nearly 30 years in the making from the first time I read The Magician’s Nephew by CS Lewis, and fallen under the spell of that dreamlike place in the woods.
Check out yours truly on page 297 of the October issue of House and Gardens, alongside a host of artists to suit every taste!
Just in case you thought the winter had got the better of me, here are three new creations……..I’ve been experimenting with the highly addictive and extremely messy acrylic pour technique (Delta) and playing with my white gel pen (Fantasy Forest) and carried away with the patterning in a log pile (King of the Castle)
A fabulous and diverse show – congratulations go to all who exhibited!
