"What is and what might be" original painting
Original acrylic and mixed media (charcoal and pen) on 60cm x 60cm box canvas.
Dozens of life studies of bamboo, done in charcoal and acrylic, along with a collaged version similar to this, were the precursors to this piece. My aim was to combine colour and line with sensitivity. Observation of the light and shadow was important to me; along with the form of the leaves and composition within the square.
I adored painting this; I would not object if it does not sell and I get to keep it forever! However, if you do buy it then I hope you love it as much as I do.
