Painting: Acrylic on Other.
Post pubescence theme.
I work in acrylic because it allows me to experiment, making changes quickly is paramount when wishing to explore my options. I apply the acrylic in successive washes to achieve a soft structure and then overpaint areas with a more opaque use of the pigments. I use artists hogs hair brushes to apply and manipulate the paint with large 3" brushes to spread the washes and break up the linework. Some pastel is used for emphasis, but the work is mostly acrylic paint. It is painted on a Superior Studland coloured board as I like the rigidity and fine coloured surface.
The work only needs framing to to make it ready to hang and should be framed under glass.
