‘Black River’ is part of my current Fenland series. The materials used in this work include bitumen, pumice stone and cold wax medium. In this work I continue to explore the contrasts between reflective and matt surfaces and how they interact with different light sources. The detailed images below should provide an indication of the underlying rhythmic qualities created by the subtle use of oil paint and cold wax impasto. The materials have been applied with a combination of brushes, palette knives and card.
