Whitby Abbey and moths

I have spent the day working on three enamel panels. I had made a sketch and had ideas for these some time ago but needed some free time to work on them.

These images are built up in layers of different colours, firing each layer and allowing it to cool before continuing.

I used a combination of techniques, making a stencil in paper of the outline of the abbey and stippling, painting and wet laying enamels.

It is the first time I have had the big kiln running for ages and it is hot and tiring work lifting these panels in and out. It was an interesting project to work on and I think the next thing I need to do are some paintings of moths and butterflies.
