Different techniques yield different results

I use plaster in different ways to produce divergent results.

I have re-worked Grasmere to put more mood into the sky - scraping away the pigment.
This painting was painted on hard dry plaster.

Working on dry plaster means that lines are sharper.


Last weekend I did a very quick painting on soft damp plaster which produces an entirely different effect - it is much more difficult to be precise (which is good for me).

It is a more immediate way of getting a memory from mind to 2 dimensions.


I enjoy both methods and strive to be looser - freer.

Come and see the difference on the 19th December at Craig-y-Nos Country Park Christmas Fair.
