'Sheep with Barn'1990
16" x 13" including frame
This beautiful old barn was one I found in the Lake District, in good repair and unspoilt, with grazing sheep around it. Batik is a perfect medium to show the cracked and crazed ancient stones. I have put many colours into the tree and then cracked the wax extensively, letting black dye into the cracks, to get the texture of the autumn leaves.
