I've been working on the as yet unnamed abstract piece and flipped in horizontally to see how it looks. I think I prefer it this way. I've added more intensity to the colour through glazes which add dept, but am not finished yet, there's still more to go as I wait for some cold wax to arrive. I want to achieve a translucent look to the piece and the cold wax may do what I envisage.
Meanwhile all will have to wait for 10 days while I take a break. I'm heading to Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to kick back on the beach, explore, eat, relax, sketch and find inspiration for new pieces. I'm leaving tomorrow first thing and haven't even begun to pack yet. I guess I should get a move on with that, shouldn't I? Then again, I can usually pack within an hour or less and travel as light as I possibly can. As I don't plan on painting as such, I'll take some sketchbooks and perhaps my watercolour set, a few pencils and pens and I'll be ready to take on new views as they arise.
I likely won't be posting on the blog during this time, but will be providing updates on Facebook. If you haven't 'Liked' my Artist or personal page there and would like to keep up with my travels, please join me there. The link is on the right hand side of the blog.
