Following on in the wonderful world of 'work in progress', here's another piece that, to be honest, has been hanging around for a while but has finally awoken with the big ambition that one day, it'll finally be finished.
It's a painting that originated from some shots I took last year, of grasses and reeds etc down in Devon (you can see one of the prints on the canvas in the top picture). Again, very quickly an idea came to mind and I looked to explore it and develop it into something I think would hopefully work.
Here's two stages. The bottom version is where it currently sits in my studio. I need to finish it. I need to finish this story and close the book. That is, as I've said before, so long as it's still interesting, still engaging, and something I think merits finishing.
To be honest the jury's still out. I still think there's merit in the concept/idea. Just don't know if I'm doing it justice. (the bottom photo is a poor colour representation)
