Here we are on the edge of another season.
I enjoyed the Melbourne festival in September and I think I am ready for the Banks Mill open studios in November.
I have been combining brush and knife work in the last few pictures I have made.
I have really enjoyed the process of underpainting the canvas and letting it dry, covering the whole thing with a top layer of mixed colours, then scraping back through to the original colour to add depth and detail, looking for “the Picture”,
Uncovering it gradually, letting it reveal itself until I reach a place where I think its ambiguity works.
