The Magic Mountain

The Magic Mountain, oil on card, 8.8 x 12.6 cm

Painted in UDSC: one of the amazing hills surrounding Florianopolis, its charms still unspolied by construction.

I feel that I have made some technical breakthroughs recently in my understanding of how to use oil paint. The smallness and rapidity of these little pictures allows me to feel able to experiment.


This picture is the part of a series of mountains: I am considering re-organising the Postcards from Florianopolis set - perhaps by breaking it into themes: highway, sea, houses- as it will shortly become too large and unwieldy.
