Abstract impressions and sketches through paint and graphite. I’m happily applying layers of acrylic paint and wax with silicon and steel blades in an encaustic method, on canvas, board, and paper. Inspired as always by the local coastline of the Coromandel.
Memories of our Mediterranean slow boat travels pop up too. This year I’ve been painting local coastal views including Flaxmill Bay & Cooks Beach.The spirit of people and landscapes are painted into the layers which become tactile, hopefully capturing the memories and essence of the much-loved coastline.
