Ocean series – 5




Acrylic & Ink on paper

Another image taken from a cropped section of Ocean 1.

After a base coat I used thin layers of paint pressed onto the paper with

tissue paper and masking tape, I then worked into some of the marks

with more paint – see close up image.

The photo doesn’t do this one justice as it gleams with light and texture.

    Looking for inspiration as I’m getting back into art after a long gap. I really liked your lights in Looe Harbour; and your approach to texture.

    I’ve admixed pva glue with acrylics before for effect, and peel surfaces apart at random.

    Thanks! I’m into working into marks left from peeling and brush stroke at the moment – quite relaxing to do!

    These calligraphic-type marks are really interesting. It makes me think of fragments of manuscript, which with the ocean link, takes me to buried treasure!

    I would like to see these in the flesh, as I know the texture will be much richer than you can capture with a photograph. The colour and composition works really well though.
