Towards the Blue, oil on canvas, (24x24cm)

Barbara Curry explains her process for painting landscapes using cold wax and oil techniques.

For this painting I wanted to  get a sense of the distance and haze of a favourite walk near where I live. It’s a compilation of different aspects of the walk: I’ve moved the foreground tree and the hill to suit a square format composition.

I usually paint only a small strip of sky: it’s the land that interests me and I want to convey a feeling of being enfolded in the landscape.
