I’ve finally finished the composition for a picture I’m working on of life in the village where I live.
I’m calling it Still life in Eynsham because that’s what it is: a series of elements fitted together to produce a pleasing arrangement in exactly the same way you would a still life of fruit, flowers or similar. I also like the ambiguity of the title, that despite all damage caused by human activity, the natural world still triumphs.
The final product will be a limited edition of drypoint prints tinted with watercolour. Still life in Eynsham part two will feature the final picture. I’m engraving the drypoint at the moment.
