My Somerset Levels
Is getting closer! Yes I know I still have a very long way to go, however I have begun the journey. After all of the fear and anxiety I have started to work proper. It is feeling good at the moment I have settled into just getting on with it and letting go.
I produced six small boards 12” x 12” they are still relatively representational but far more abstracted than I dared to hope for at this stage.
I was of course hoping for frosty, misty, icy, snowy mornings; which make the levels so mysterious. However the floods are what we have and they have had a great impact on the work produced so far.
My Somerset levels
I introduced my favourite colour turquoise into the pallet as I was worried it was in danger of getting a bit samey. Not very levels I’m afraid but I am comfortable with it. I think it adds a lift to the floods as they can be very grey as well as being very beautiful. Like all bodies of water they are moody; and I hope I am getting this across.
all of the Somerset paintings can now be seen in ‘my Somerset levels’ Gallery I hope you enjoy them
