Wood Between The Worlds Evolutions

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.

Beautiful quality limited edition prints of this painting are now available to buy direct from me starting at £85 for A2 (59 x 42 cm)
