Based on an idea from Joan Blackburn's excellent book Exploring the Abstract. Then found some old ref photos and ideas and got the basis of the composition.Trying to show the various activities in our local New Forest with runners, walkers, huntsmen plus digging for oil and an organisation that can't coordinate them but would like to.
Going bigger I used a roller for larger areas and quite liked the smoother finish.

This reminds me of paintings from the Art History textbooks, the Abstract history section, perhaps from the 1950-60's. Innovative in a way, classic in a way. Very good piece, just a hint of reality, and a lot of suggestine

Very nice strong work. Fun experimental techniques used here.

Thanks Harry. Trying stuff which most abstractees have used I guess.
Good composition, and I like the transparent effects.

I used a roller so often in my recent paintings that I decided to leave it be for a while... and I feel like on cold turkey at the moment.
Love what you did here. The combination of several different activities around makes this scene very lively.

Thank you Daniel.it's my first time and feel it helps, certainly with a limited control hands and fingers.
