Over the weekend I felt a sudden burst of energy to work on a mixed-media piece, and a returned enthusiasm and motivation of wanting to create undisrupted. I enjoyed every moment of drawing, pushing and smudging the inks and wax around the paper. And because there is a certain degree of unpredictability in the method, constantly making adjustments depending on how the drawing evolved along the way.
This led to a second piece with different media to explore the difference in the results. And then a third one, which is still in progress. I might have caught a cold, from working in the coldest part of the house in winter. So until I feel better, the third one might take a while more to finish.
Here’s the first of the ‘Hyde Park in Autumn’ Series done in mixed-media, drawn in ink with twig, and layering onto the foundation with wax, watercolour, more inks, and oil pastels.
I will be posting soon the second piece based on a different media palette.
