Fired Earth 24" x 24"
Mixed media on canvas.
I recently finished this painting, which was a bit experimental and not entirely successful. The texture, that is a bit difficult to see in this photo, was created by covering the canvas on the right hand side with Japanese paper well soaked in dilute PVA adhesive and then pushing it about into ridges and creases, all the time keeping it well doused with the PVA.
The left side was treated in the same way but using newspaper to create rather deeper ridges and creases.
Your critical comments would be appreciated
