I did this for a local exhibition coming up in July. I’m still not sure about it. It goes back to earlier work I did on the passage of time and links that and my interest in the local landscape. Clieve’s Hills are some small mounds behind the drained marshlands which are themselves behind Southport where I live and the coast of Merseyside. I have done many paintings of them. Like most projects it started well, but inch by inch I began to lose the control I wanted and it ended up becoming something that I hadnt envisaged or really wanted. I suppose that’s why you keep going – to get a satisfactory outcome.
I will put it on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com. Have a look at what’s there.
