Following a successful exhibition with the Rangiora Art Society I’ve continued working with the new style I am trying to develop. I’m more or less happy with the work I’m producing, the vignette has been an important part of my work for a few years now but I’m trying to take it in a new direction. These works are, like all my work, based on a fairly detailed drawing, but the painting starts with very loose bands of wet on wet colours swiped across the work before the light patches are lifted out and the painting executed with varying levels of detail. The amount of detail which is necessary is where I find my self in a bit of an artistic quandary. Oh well I suppose I’ll settle on what works for me before I head off on some other tangent.
