The last oozing of the summer

I suspect the only way to capture the warm translucence of honey in a painting is through glazing. I practised glazing in several layers with transparent orange oil paint, using linseed oil and solvent as a medium, to capture this, the last honey of the summer.

My hope, one day, is to create, in Robert Hughes’s words, a painting that ‘holds time as a vase holds water’
