‘Castlerigg (Purple)’ is an artwork depicting the standing stones at Castlerigg in Cumbria. It is part of a series of three paintings.

I had just – before the outbreak of Corona – bought new Posca acrylic markers after attending a workshop in the center of Rotterdam. I enjoyed using them very much on these three canvases.
This is a painting in acrylic paint on cotton, 20 x 20 centimeters. I made the first set-up for all three canvases at the same time, using acrylic paint, mainly around the color purple. Then I added a lot of water, creating structures by dabbing on the wet paint with tissues. Then I applied the thicker paint. After letting it dry, I finished the whole thing with the acrylic markers in the colors blue, marine blue, violet, pink, purple and khaki green.
