Gerald Shepherd: Ariadne On Naxos (Two Images From The Myth)

These two pictures were painted on two very rough pieces of plywood which I found in my father’s loft.  They had been badly hacked about and various layers were showing.  I primed the wood with acrylic and painted over it in oils.

Although examples of Meditative Process Art the actual style harks back to some large scale coloured pencil on wood pictures done in 1976.
