My first painting based on the flood debris, above is it nearly finished, below is the finished painting.
This is the beginning of the work I am doing towards the exhibition at The Brewery in Kendal. It’s all based around the devastation caused by the floods in December. As always, I’m fascinated by the tangle of object, wood and general debris in the trees around the river. Also the fact that it seems to have made a big change in the landscape around the river, much of the field is no longer there – the river is wider and now has a rocky beach.
So I’m busy making drawing on site and playing with them in the studio.
These two paintings have been further worked on.
Lots of sketches and photos from observation surrounding me in the studio.
