Original abstract painting; oil on canvas, 20 x 16 inches. Colours include rich chestnut/ red umber brown / burnt sienna / light brick red, warm rosy tan, golden indian yellow and light blue.

I'm finding that improvised drawing is increasingly at the heart of my work, and I've been exploring ways to bring it more fluently into the painting process. Here an underlying drawing in acrylic is overlaid with both dilute and opaque oil paint.

Signed and dated on the back and sent with a certificate of authenticity.
A small signature monogram will also be added to the painting.

Please click and zoom on each thumbnail image for larger views.

Unframed. Digital border added to one image to give a sense of the painting on display.

Shipped from the UK via Airsure.
This work will be sent to you carefully wrapped in protective packing papers and foam wrap in reinforced corrugated cardboard packaging.

I'll ship to the address given to Etsy unless a note is included when ordering with an alternative address, for example for convenience a work or other daytime address. If you'd prefer this, please let me know in the note to seller at time of ordering.

Thank you for looking!
