This is a series of small Ink and Watercolour paintings, including words from two journeys that had a great impact upon me. Each image is approximately 4″ high by 6″wide. I completed and exhibited these in about 1998, first in Shrewsbury and then in a couple of other places.
Some have sold, the remaining ones are, as actors say, “resting”. I’m not sure whether I will revisit and re-work this series; I had ideas about painting fewer, larger, versions of selected pictures but right now I have other things to deal with.
This is a work in progress – For now I’ve just put up the images but I shall add the text that surrounds them soon. First the original reworked sketches and then paintings from the journey in Turkey in 1988, then the paintings from the Oregon journey in 1993:
Turkey 1988 – Ancient and Wild; a journey to climb Mount Ararat
Oregon 1993 – a Wilderness Journey from the Californian to Washington State border:
