I have been experimenting with different sizes and different surfaces over the last couple of months and this painting was the result of two ideas coming together.
I had a number of small, 30 x 30 cm, wooden panels which I wanted to do something with but having just spent some time working on the letterbox series the square shape wasn't really working for me. So I decided to take 3 of the boards and temporarily fix them together to create a long, letterbox shaped panel on which to work.
First attempts were on the right track but the sky was looking a little too monochrome and didn't really work with the land.
So I covered the whole painting with a translucent colour and started working into the painting again.
Now the paintings were completed the challenge now was how best to frame them but luckily I have a fabulous framers who came up with the perfect solution!
Each board was mounted on a panel which was then painted black to match the frame. This was then all framed with a floating frame.
This triptych has been named Storm Clouds over the Moors.
