I would like to share with you my latest work and show you stages of its making.
December 2014/ January 2015
Inspiration: Clitheroe, the Courtyard
This town is still full of surprises to me as scenes appear in front of my eyes unexpectedly and I can swear I may have never seen them before – well, not in this light, not with this texture, not in those colours.
The urge to transfer the view on a canvas is following me all the time, impatiently emerging in my head where the painting process have already began. I need to be taking thousand of pictures!
It is the scariest thing – to face an empty, white canvas. Not for long … soon the coloured pencil scratches it bringing the outlines of shapes and marking the colours I am going to use .
Then, the enamel.. in variety of colours! The beauty of enamel is the line which allows to emphasise important places such as light streaks on the verge of a windowsill or the pattern of the bricks or slates in the shadows. And it changes the picture into something surreal, magical: exactly what I have imagined: the real and unreal, joined together in perfect union to bring joy, happy thoughts and excitement.
