St. Ninian's Cave - Abstract
Well, here goes; I've thought about how to tackle this and found the easiest way was to not think about the colours or application of paint but to think of what it is, where it is and it's history. I still wanted to have a 'cave' or, an area of dark, quiet, mystery. I think I have included the elements from the original painting; the sand, pebbles, sea, rocks and the driftwood crosses. I've also included quite a lot of symbols to represent it's connection to religion and pilgrims. I would be interested to see if you can make some of them out....answers on a postcard....lol. I used the same palette as the previous acrylic and it's on primed board.
