Charcoal and gouache on Fabriano 4 smooth finish 220gsm paper
195 x 150cm
This painting took about a month to complete and it paralleled process I was undertaking in an exercise in direct seeing.By direct seeing I mean looking at your thoughts , emotions etc without judgement, just seeing them and very honestly and directly seeing what is on front of you. The process shows how we so often get caught up on thoughts and stories without truly seeing what is in front of us.
Again in this painting I refered back to the Echinacea's that I had painted so many times in San Marcos, they complemented the direct seeing process perfectly for me.
