Lifting the Veil - Christine Maynard

Christine Maynard

Lifting the Veil, 2022

100 x 100 x 3.5 cmAcrylic on canvas
Something about ‘feeling’ the landscape rather than just ‘seeing’ what is on the surface.
Unveiling what lies below the surface.
(this literally happens as I scrape back top layers to reveal parts that are underneath – then deciding what to keep in the final painting)
A feeling that there is lots of colour underneath just waiting to burst through …
Lots and lots of decision making all the way through a painting like this one.
