These are the first works to emerge as a sort of consolidated series of "paintings" . They are all 40 cm square and made on pre-stretched canvas - I usually work on unstretched canvas. The surface has more variety perhaps than previous work with more use of transparent washes - possibly a knock on effect of printmaking. I am also moving into a looser handling and more open-ended drawing than in recent work. They are formative but something is going on that interests me. So that is a good thing..
