Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

you crouch and listen
from sky filled rocks the water tumbles...

little oil painting from a life drawing sketch.
layers built up, the body translucent reflecting colours around.

This is a small delicate painting created by layer upon layer of paint. Initially I painting the canvas with vibrant blue and green inks. When dry, a layer of oil paint was added to sketch out the image. I work from an original drawing. I take an image transfer from the drawing and this is layered onto the paint. Parts of that layer were then scratched away. I even use sandpaper to work at it. then further oil painting on top and another translucent image transfer. Finishing details finally added with oil paint.

In the frame the art work is 17cm x 22cm

I have been making things and painting things since childhood. Those days were spent living deep in the countryside nestled between woodland and lakes, an inspiration still.

The Solid insistence of nature; her transience...cycles of growth and decay, vulnerability and magic inform the mood and subject matter of my art works.

Sheffield (in Yorkshire, England) is famed for being the greenest city in Europe, the landscape is glorious with majestic mature trees, sweeping across the seven hills. From my studio I take in these views, witnessing and finding inspiration from the emotionally charged landscape that stretches out towards the moorlands of the Peak District national park.
