Artist's description:

This painting uses materials collected from a cycle ride in the Quantocks that are close by Taunton. Through listening to the natural sounds of the landscape, the birds, the wind in the trees, the sounds from the environment traversing the air, I respond to the sounds through making marks, dripping pigments and crushing soil between my fingers and allowing them all to fall upon the collected water in my tray that held the postcard (a symbol of travel).

The postcard painting becomes a postcard capturing the experience of being in one spot, overlooking Taunton as seen from the hills of the Quantocks using material collected from the journey to and around the Quantock hills. The painting becomes a topographical representation of a landscape, or a section of a rock or a patch of ground made from the very ground I walked and cycled upon.

It was left to dry and sealed with pva and satin varnish.

Materials used:

Handmade Rock Pigment, Watchet Rocks, Medium, Linseed Oil, Medium, Water from a stream.
