Smaller-Scale Landscapes

On a recent trip to Aberystwyth and the area surrounding Devil’s Bridge (think “Hinterland” country), I decided to experiment with using the same small-scale format I often use for my cellular paintings, for some new landscapes.

Normally, I start large landscapes with big expansive brush marks and expressive textures for drawing into with paint. However, working on this smaller scale requires far more discipline but it’s a refreshing challenge to have to keep the image much simpler within this tighter format.
