Ballinglen 16

This collection of work was created during my first visit to Ballinglen in 2016 where I first discovered oil and cold wax.  My work started to move towards a more abstract style whilst retaining the atmosphere you normally see in my landscapes.  The layering, using cold wax, pure pigments, pastels and oil bars, provides depth to the painting and allows me to use colours I don't normally use.  The images are also based on my memory of a place rather than relying on photographs and sketches.
