Robins - 18 x 18cms
transparent watercolour on gold acrylic ground
Exploring abstraction and still obsessed with gold grounds. Finally settled on a combination of abstract and figurative styles for this favourite subject. The presence of robins in our grey garden at this time of year is such a joy.
I decided to limit myself to transparent watercolour for this painting but I'm really missing a touch of white gouache. Sometimes just putting a painting up on my blog gives me enough distance to decide if it's working. Perhaps you can help me decide? The scan doesn't do justice to the richness of the gold shining through the transparent colour.
