This is an original painting in watercolour, fineliner pen and golf leaf. Recently, I have been experimenting with different methods of applying watercolour, deliberately developing bleeds, runs, granulation and feathering. I overlay the paintings with linework in pen and embellished some with gold.
This painting, I have called ‘Grounded’ because it’s about a feeling of home. This past year (2020 – 2021 for those reading this in the future!) has shifted my perspectives on home, as I’m sure it has for many others. There is a real sense of gratitude and protection which I hope I have portrayed here, and a stillness. However, I don’t feel 100% comfortable with ‘home’, it can be too constrained, too small, lacking connection, always looping back to itself, never reaching outward. This is also about a sense of finding an artistic ‘home’ and feeling confident in it, but at the same time not wanting to stand still for too long.
Painted on cold pressed 9×12 inch (310 x 2230mm) 300gsm watercolour paper with Ivory black watercolour from Winsor and Newton. Details with a 0.1 Uni-pin fineliner pen and embellished with 23 carat gold leaf.
