Oxfordshire Artweeks 'lockdown' 2020 virtual exhibitionSadly the Oxfordshire Artweeks festival cannot happen this year but here are a few of the pieces I would have been showing. You can see lots more of my work at www.rodcraig.com The music for this video is 'all rivers lead to the sea' which I wrote and recorded for mandolin and guitar.
An ocean in between the waves: A five minute watercolourA quick watercolour painting working on Khadi Indian rag paper. I like to work on wet paper using strong colours and a water spray to keep the paint flowing. The idea is to create a mood and a sense of movement and place without being too literal. The music which I recorded in the two days prior to the painting hopefully completes the picture by using the instruments to create feelings in a similar way.
