1m x 1m – acrylic and spray-paint on stretched canvas.

As part of my growing fascination with Turner-esque paintings of the English countryside in winter, the emergence of “Ashen” unfolded gradually over the course of a month. While initially intending to continue refining and shaping this piece, a realization dawned on me—I found a certain allure in its current state, capturing a moment frozen in time. The deliberate use of charcoals and Payne’s grays allowed me to craft a composition that resonates with the stark, cold essence of winter. The subtle interplay of shadows and highlights brings forth the melancholic beauty inherent in the desolation of a winter landscape. Each stroke serves as a deliberate expression, a visual symphony echoing the tranquility and harshness intertwined within the wintry scene.
