The second in a series of paintings inspired by a subterranean. volcanic landscape. I was drawn to this imagery because of the strong, fiery colours. Vibrant red and orange combing with grey lilac and rose on a highly textured canvas. Like all my paintings the 'Mining the Earth II' is built with layers of layers of thick paint that is applied, scratched off and re-applied. This process lends the painting depth and makes it richly textured.
Mining the Earth II is painted around the edges and is ready for hanging.
