Oil and Wax, 11 x 14 inches
This oil and wax painting is part of a series that conveys an impression of the spaces where water finds its way between steep, dominant and ominous rock formations. Though these are relatively small works, there is an intricate blending of colour and a heavy reliance on texture and detail throughout to effectively portray the majesty of the scene.
“Never change the course of a line until you have to. Never change the plane of a form until you have to. Never change the tone of a colour or form until you have to. If you follow these injunctions intelligently you will practice that great economy which is necessary to expression in your medium. Every change must count, and count strong.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
