Oil and mixed media on paper

Another small painting from the series of ideas developed from Wuzhen. In this image Ian Murphy has explored the confined alleyways, just off the beaten track, to discover the more intimate side of the village. The focal point is the misty quality of light filtering in from the background.
This image contains a technique that Ian Murphy pioneered a few years ago, burning calligraphy into the surface of the painting.
