“There was no one around to look at what I was doing,
...no one interested,
no one to say anything about it one way or another.
I was alone and singularly free,
no one to satisfy but myself”
This picture has been hanging in my studio
for several weeks. Today I decided to
make some significant changes.
Taking a bold approach I added a lot of dark paint.
Prussian blue, cobalt blue, manganese blue.
Some red...permanent rose, alizarin crimson.
Plus cold wax medium and some titanium white.
Layering and rollering, the colours blended together.
Scratching into the layers revealed dry paint beneath.
‘Song of the Earth’
Oils and cold wax medium
100 x 100 cm canvas
It was a risky business...but I am satisfied.
No one to please but myself.
Thank you Georgia O’Keefe
Until next time...
