A mixed media painting that combines man made and natural detritus

Season of Mists is a painting with a message, in the guise of a heavily textured mixed media painting by Carole Robson. At first glance it portrays a gentle scene, a portion of leafless coppiced woodland, in misty greys. Painted in a mixture of watercolour and acrylic inks, on closer inspection the collaged surface reveals the columns of stock market figures that underscore a surface heavily built up with both natural and recycled man made detritus. Its message is clear, commenting on a world that values economic gain above the survival of the natural world.

Season of Mists is a heavily textured mixed media painting using watercolour and acrylic inks. It is also a painting with a message that at first glance portrays a gentle scene, a portion of leafless coppiced woodland, in a palette of misty greys. On closer inspection the collaged surface reveals an under layer where columns of stock market figures underscore a heavily built up texture of both natural and man made detritus. Its message is clear, commenting on a world where economic gain impacts and endangers the natural world.
