Alongside working on the big paintings I have been making an ongoing series of small sea and sky paintings. These are two I have worked on this week. They are each 25 x 30cm. I find it interesting how difficult it is to make something that small, and for the things you do to the painting to add up to something rather than just obliterate what came before. I see these small things as paintings in their own right and not smaller versions of the big pieces; they are like a tangential commentary on the bigger paintings.
