Small surreal paintings
These two Small surreal paintings are titled Cycles of Habit and Sombre Landscape. They are both mixed on canvas and 42 * 29 cm in size. This has become a standard size for many of my small surreal paintings. Most of these works are actually situated in the small masters works page of this website. They have been added to a book I’ve compiled and left at the Professional Centre for viewing. This will be the first of many similar books of Small surreal paintings I hope to compile. Many of these small have sold, so they are proving to be quite popular.
Cycles of Habit
You can also see some of them in the Surreal Mixed Media section of the website. I create most of these works through a purely improvisational approach. The paint goes on spontaneously from the outset. Often I work on about thirty or more of these works or more at a time. The layers are built up over a few weeks. I may spend an hour doing one layer on one, then another half hour doing a layer on another and so on. Occasionally ink is added to add depth, colour or vibrancy to the works.
Cycles of Habit incorporates ink into the design while Sombre landscape is done purely in oils.
