Mark Payne

Mark's beautiful, luminous tree studies are the time consuming result of applying many layers of transparent paint. Using oils, he generally starts with a monochrome under-painting, usually in shades of grey or ochre, on a white surface. Once fully dry, this is painted over with successive layers of transparent colour known as ‘glazes’. Each new glaze changes the optical qualities of the layers beneath, resulting in a richness and purity of colour that is otherwise very hard to achieve.
