On Painting

.. because I have started again. I had a look at two of my abstract works in progress, seen here in quick colour sketches,

and did a lot of glazing (thin layers of translucent colour) on one of them. It's an 80*80cm square.

I'm planning to take it further tomorrow when this layer has dried and get started with more of the lower, opaque layers on the second one, which should eventually look more shimmery like the sketch.

This is a 60*60 square and has a companion piece for which I have only painted a plain background so far.

All of these came out of a kind of prayer/meditation type of session I sometimes do with a set of oil pastels and a sketch book handy.
