68 X 50 cm
Glass Window has been the starting point of my latest work. The ideas have taken a while to develop but images are starting to shape up... in my head! However, more difficult than ideas, has been the execution of watercolour images to share the planned ideas. There has been quite a bit of practice, practice and more practice; with a drop of experimentation thrown in for good measure so that finally it is all leading to something new emerging. So, Glass Window II, is the first watercolour painting of a wave that I have created. The image is an attempt to capture a combination of the free flowing movement of water with the idea of boundaries and framing that we see in stained glass. A move away from the soft transitions caused by the changing thickness of water to more deliberate shapes being captured.
