cubist landscape



I was looking at Giotto's frescoes of St Francis - a rather iconic bit of work
thus the painting. It shows the pilgrim not talking to the birds, which I probably
should have done but having a chat to the fish in a cubist landscape.

Its basically a painting of turps washes with a bit of oil over the top here and
there. To increase the Fresco look, I put a layer or two of modelling paste on
the canvas and painted away when dry.

Re: cubist landscape

The figure seems monumental, almost like the sphinx in Egypt, a god ruling the landscape. Your work brings these sorts of things to my mind. Gary

Re: cubist landscape

Coming across to me as very pagan shrine like animal/human figure. Lovely depth and monumental feeling, and your usual patterns of greens blues and turquoise - very nice.

Re: cubist landscape

Your style is so good. I love the fact that it is powerfully graphic, interestingly colored, interestingly textured, mysteriously layered, fascinatingly dimensional, and just plain attractive to look at. Lovely work.
