Sunburst

Paul Binnie “Sunburst” 2016 main image
Kóbó shows several shafts of light bursting through the clouds on a blustery day, and these illuminate the Tor, or granite outcrop, on the high moorlands. I have used gomazuri (sesame printing, ie. broken colour) in yellow ochre and violet on the rocks, and baren sujizuri again to enliven the large grey cloud areas, and there are blue edges to some of the shafts of light, an effect I observed in nature. Looking carefully, one might see the shape of a traveller dwarfed by the rock formation.
