Wood Paintings

I’m always on the lookout for new challenges, partly because I love experimentation, but mostly because I have a very short attention span. I’ve been interested in the idea of painting on wood for a while, mainly because I find canvas to be disruptive when combined with the levels of detail I aim to achieve.

With that in mind, I purchased my first framed wood panel randomly and decided to use watercolours, instead of acrylic or oil. The results were heartening! I had no idea about the pigment bleeds, but I took control quickly enough and the result was The Key (kinglet), which I’m incredibly pleased with. Since then I’ve completed The Crown, Royal Banner, Tranquility, Lily and New Horizons, and I see no end to wood panels in the ‘Conversations’ body of work.

Compared to paper, the wood is sturdy and able to take quite a bit of water. It also comes framed and ready to hang, so I don’t have to worry about finding frames. I spend a lot of time looking for wood with character: obvious grain, whorls and pigment. I can’t wait to finally put oils to wood, but for now, I’m more than happy with my water paint/colour pencil combo :)
