Crash and burn

uncompromising revision

This piece was finished. But then not finished.
Back on the easel it sits.
I walk streets and think.
To paint the whole garden in flat colour is radical - I like the idea!
I draw it in with a white Conte crayon, and, starting at the top I paint it all in. I pre-mix colour with a knife and then apply it with a nylon brush. No modulation, no brushwork and no artistry, just coloured in. It all hangs on the idea, the drawing and the choice of colour.
A lot cranky and a little bit wonderful.
