hard ground etching, 2012

I have been working on a series of etchings, drawings and paintings of places in or close to Les Bassacs.  No particular goal in mind - just recording, looking and thinking.  I make the etchings back in the studio from drawings,  photographs and memory.  I make them the old fashioned way, on zinc mostly, etched in nitric acid.

oil on board, 2012

The paintings I have been starting in situ, and and then working on them in the studio.  I have also been making postcard-sized paintings on board, quickly and in one go just trying to grab an image and not kill it.  I'll post some of those another time.
