This dramatic painting was inspired by tidal markings, seaweed and flotsam and jetsam that washes against the sea wall. I combine oil, wax and metal leaf on board. I work on several paintings at once, building up textures and layers with brushes, card, rags and dip pens. I then scrape away areas to reveal earlier historical marks. This signed painting comes framed with a subtle solid oak limed frame.
Oli paint, wax, metal leaf and carborundum.
