The Wanderlust project last week was to paint an abstract landscape using a textured background. This is the photo I started with; a picture of Corfe Castle.
First I added some collage to my canvas and, having sketched on my picture, then added modelling paste to give texture. Then came layers of inks, paints and water-soluble oil pastels.
The idea was not to end up with an exact copy, but rather a representation of the picture. Here is my finished picture.
