About this work
“I work in acrylic and start each painting with bold blocks of color to work out my composition. I like to see evidence of the thought process, the changes and refinements in drawing and the composition evident on the canvas itself. This under painting sometimes has a complementary color and sometimes an analogous one compared with what I imagine will be the final layer. In order to keep the eye moving across the canvas and to create depth, I like to vary the resolution of the upper layers, sometimes keeping an area loose with the under painting showing through and sometimes bringing out more detail.”~HEATHER FOSTER
