Technique : ￼Watercolours ” Running to the Wood” and layers of colour glazing.
I really enjoy just letting the colours
run freely on the page seeing what colors interact with each other￼. Sometimes I let it dry completely and start another layer and darker bringing the wood closer, darker creating the illusion of depth. #suzannemclementsartwork
Birch songs #22 October 2019
Sometimes, when I start to create my birch trees, I can get a bit lost in the woods. a good perspective, ￼ I use my iPhone to take a photo and turn into a black-and-white photography on my Iphone. Doing this really helps me to sort out the balance the contrast, the composition, it’s a wonderful tool to use. ￼
I remember in school I remember in college we would take her paintings to mirror ￼￼ ￼￼and look at them in reverse to see any flaws in the compositions. It helps you separate the subject matter from the form design and texture￼.
Creating Birch Songs in acrylic i use a very different style. When I paint a picture I plan out All the details ￼and get an idea how I want the picture to look, but doing this birch trees series ￼is more experiential it is like creating a new piece of music each time. When I start , I don’t know where I’m gonna end. The progression is the most magical feeling and I just hope to bring that out and have the view, experience the same wonder of the musical these woods.
