Starting painting

winter journey III susan laughton 2009
After quite a break whilst moving studios I really need to get painting again! An exciting but also scary prospect...This is a detail from one of the last series of little paintings I made with gesso and pencil, which are currently on display at the lovely Cupola Gallery in Sheffield and on my website. I need to get back to my sketchbooks first to pick up my train of thought(s) and will probably start with some small works on paper - a less daunting prospect than stretching canvases. Cupola have several of my paintings on show as well as Secondnature work. They currently have a solo show 'Like a Fool' by John Brokenshire.
