Looking at it…
After a few tortuous hours this painting (below) was, finally, born. At first, I just couldn't stand the sight of it. It spent a couple of days hidden away amongst my reference sheets, then a further couple of days on shelf-top display whilst I decided its fate. Weird? Perhaps. But, my painting 'process', can be arduous to say the least! Anyway, after allowing it to 'prove', I grew to accept this painting, and it certainly met the original brief: cold, icy, windswept, bleached. Just a shame it was such a hard birth.
