Recently I received a very welcome email. It was from the organisers of The Rotary Art Spectacular 2018 with the good news that Escarpment Shadows has been selected for this year’s Exhibition.
Two more paintings Afternoon Light – Drakensberg – oil on canvas and Peonies – watercolour on paper were selected for the online exhibition.
The dramatic mountain range creates strong shadows as the sun strikes the ridges. A palette knife was used to apply paint on to the birch panel. A panel is good when working with a thicker application as there is no movement of the substrate which could cause the paint layers to crack. Scraping paint across the firm surface is also very satisfying.
