based on the power of the sea, I partially destroyed the support using water, scrunching, scraping and rubbing.

This interests me Maggie. I'm attracted to works that are obviously about an exploration of a "process" of sorts. I trust it's not a one-off, and that you have the inherent discipline to continue with your research, that perhaps should result in a progressive series based on your findings. Are you in a position to delve deeply into the power of the sea?

You're right, this is the end of a series of explorations linked to the sea. I looked at corrosion of metal,monotypes , and eroding ice with salt on time lapse and other drawings. This is where it lead for now

OK then I'm keenly interested in seeing the progress you've made in order to arrive at this juncture. Oftentimes the steps taken to achieve a significant point-in-time are significant in themselves. Do you care to share with us the development that has led to the visual solution of this piece?

So?

i got really angry making this piece and slashed it with a knife then layered on lots of ccolours and scraped the sky area. I like the effect here shimmery. also like the dark ground with colours over

here's where i started scrunching the paper. then worked in with pastels- loose powder and very active colour. but putting in the sky and horizon distances you from it. it's not dangerous now
