Sunset Over The Castle
The vision for my work is to continually working towards a more abstract style. I am aiming to depict views that everybody will recognize but in an abstract style, but still asking the viewer to recognize what I have depicted. Part of my work is to take iconic Warwickshire views but paint them in a contemporary, abstract style.
My inspiration is the landscape around me and the landscape I visit. Not necessarily big open expansive landscapes, sometimes small details within a bigger picture.
I mainly use acrylic, applied quite thickly, initially with a credit card and then as the painting progresses working through different size brushes for the detail. I also use masking tape extensively to build up layers and produce different edges.
