Trespassing For Art IV
Pastel on paper
Framed measurements 30 x 40 cm
While searching for some gigantic red fir trees seen from the road, I found I had to cross private land owned by a sawmill to get to them. As no one was around I began to quickly record the woodland I was in as the autumn colours were vivid that day and glowed in the blue English light.
There is now a series of five drawings made plein air.
Trespassing For Art IV is a drawing on painted paper made using pastel pencils, coloured pencils and graphite. The underlying vermillion acrylic paint breaks through the textured pastels which remain unblended and raw. The dominant colours are turquoise and yellow ochre which when applied and mixed over the vermillion paper create the deep, layered, natural colours of autumn.
Unframed drawing on naturally coloured paper.
