Inspiration from Corrugated Metal and Tree Bark

This is one of the images that I picked for a submission, primarily because it was popular in an informal poll, and people mentioned the ‘blue’ as a positive step, transitioning to blue skies ahead.

I have been working on paintings that try to encompass the two very different things into one image, and this is the image I have been working with most, probably because of the blue strip. This is my first watercolour sketch where I am trying to combine my fissured bark/rusty urban object abstract. Watercolour sketch of my bark/urban debris abstract

And my second. The texture is from salt which is sticking and won’t brush off. I quite like it as watercolour doesn’t usually have texture, and this does. Watercolour sketch of my bark/urban debris abstract

This acrylic painting is not finished, but I like the way it worked with the scraps of painting and wax paper underneath.Painting of my bark/corrugated rust abstract

This image was chosen as part of the exhibit ‘Surfacing’ but unfortunately it is in an online gallery which really doesn’t have the same look as when it appears as an 18″ x 31″ E-Print aluminum plate mounted on a wall.Diptych of corrugated metal and fissured bark on a wall
