A shot of the current large scale painting in progress at the studio. The painting continues the theme of nature in the city, the contrasting colours of autumn against a muted backdrop. The canvases are built up with layers of gesso, clay and sand to create a heavily textured surface. This painting also draws on the influence of William Morris on my work, The canvas consists of 4 separate 125cm sq sections. Produced to work on their own as individual paintings, however each canvas will share similar colour schemes and reoccurring forms so that the compositional pattern will flow through entire piece when combinedIMG_0013
