Mixed Media by Rod Ashman
I like working with a range of media and materials on a variety of surfaces. I suppose my favourite surface to work on is heavy watercolour paper, which I can tear and dig into. My subject matter tends to be either landscape, seascape and architectural structures.
Working outside in the elements is a joy and presents different challenges compared to studio working in my studio. Both are important to me.
A purely topographical approach doesn’t really interest me, rather I endeavour to bring together what is experienced through the senses with memories, knowledge of media, techniques and processes. Allowing for the most important element of course which is chance.
