I use plaster in different ways to produce divergent results.
I have re-worked Grasmere to put more mood into the sky - scraping away the pigment.
This painting was painted on hard dry plaster.
Working on dry plaster means that lines are sharper.
Last weekend I did a very quick painting on soft damp plaster which produces an entirely different effect - it is much more difficult to be precise (which is good for me).
It is a more immediate way of getting a memory from mind to 2 dimensions.
I enjoy both methods and strive to be looser - freer.
Come and see the difference on the 19th December at Craig-y-Nos Country Park Christmas Fair.
