The Making of the Yellow field paintings
An insight into the makings of the cold wax yellow field paintings. First some middle of the field sketching in watercolour and a few photographs. Next back in the studio, I mix up the Michael Harding paint with 50:50 cold wax (from Zest) all in advance and start applying lumps with palette knives. Next I use the silicon wedges to mix, flow and create the large areas.
