Once More Into the Woods Again…

So the fifth in the series of locally-sourced ‘woodscapes’, pictured here at rest upon the easel, finally arrived at a state of conclusion on Sunday after much huffing, puffing, scraping-off and re-painting, one of those paintings where it really is all about the struggle & the work in resolving the challenges the process sets.

The familiar rules apply: an emphasis on, in the main, horizontal & vertical brushstrokes that correspond to those aspects of the picture plane & the nature of the subject matter depicted, & painterly texture, establishing a physical surface to the painting analogous to the embodied experience of being in the wooded environment.
