Kingfisher | Mixed Media | 8' x 11'
Two large pieces of raw canvas form the diptych that is 'Kingfisher'. It is an example of the very large graphic work I like to do. Large scale work ( 6' x 8' oil on canvas, 4' x 5' acrylic and mixed media works on board or raw canvas for example) is a more recent direction that evolved out of the water- inspired art I created c. 2012. The freedom of expression one can find working in this scale is very inspiring as an artist. Often, in the freedom, experimentation and risk of this type of artistic process, one can experience the 'happy accident' - an outcome neither planned nor expected (nor potentially wanted!) but one that ultimately realizes a new direction and growth.
