Paisley Art Institute Entry

Thought you might like to take a look at the large painting that I've done as this year's entry to the Paisley art Institute.  This is a prestigious annual show in the Art Galleries and Museum in Paisley, which is selected by a panel.

This is an oil and collage piece on linen, called "Driving Rain, the Cuillins".  It's 90cm square.

Here's some close-ups of the collage, which uses tissue paper, paint, paper and hessian.  I like using collage as a way into exploring texture, which I then try to use as a way of informing my mark-making when I am painting purely in oils.

I'll have to wait until the beginning of May before I know if it's been accepted!  Fingers crossed...
