On the verge of finishing this…although at this stage I could keep on tweaking the image forever! Every time I look at it I see something to adjust. But it is also important to me to keep the process visible, to keep some of the very scraggly underpainting visible. It’s a very hit and miss image…below is a detail to give you an idea of a close view. The weave of the canvas is quite visible, covered by the first thin washes I put down. You may also see how some stones are made by painting the negative shapes around them.


"Stones", a detail.
