Aether Worlds – new series of abstract landscapes – winter 2019/2020

Aether Worlds 

This new series of abstract landscape oil paintings expands on similar themes developed in the "Supernature" series of abstract landscape paintings, and uses palette knives instead of brushes to create effects with the oil paint itself.
This technique creates a flatter, less textural finish to the works, whilst retaining a sense of depth, movement and light...

I've been moving towards this palette knife technique, firstly with a few portraits during the early part of 2019 and then onto these abstracted works starting with "Lightbringer" in November. In fact the whole series is really an exploration of how to get light travelling through the works.
