Printmaking: Acrylic on Canvas.
My original paintings are available as Limited Edition prints. Each as authentic as the original and individually artisan produced in a choice of sizes, personally signed, numbered and certified.
My fine art paper reproductions are printed using Canon Lucia EX pigment inks. The paper is a French made Cold Press style 320 gsm textured Cotton Rag – acid and lignin free to ensure a very long life.
My canvas reproductions use the same quality Canon Lucia inks printed on 400 gsm Sihil Masterclass Cotton Poly Blend Canvas made, in Switzerland, by world-renown manufacturers.
The canvas is spray coated with two coats of UV inhibiting, protective laminate ensuring a lifespan, under normal condition, of over 100 years.
The same care and diligence is taken with the packaging of each Limited Edition print to ensure safe arrival at its destination.
ABOUT THIS PAINTING
This is the third in a series of paintings all of which centred and subsequently evolved around images of ancient ruins.
The original visuals were researched and found online but I only use them as as a starting point.
And I never know where the journey will take me nor where it will end.
I also found some statues online. They were historic, unusual and magnificent. As was the sky, which is a vital element - it creates mood.
Finding and unearthing all the ingredients is, for me, the path travelled when I’m ‘putting’ my paintings together.
Obviously I plan them in some detail and use, in this case, predominately photographic reference which I collate, change and re-assemble in Photoshop to create the characters, the setting, the period, the atmosphere and the final imagery I‘m after.
For example the face, expression and demeanour of the female character was important. I found a believable face and married the body, jewellery, clothing etc. from other sources to orchestrate the character.
Inevitably, everything changes when the original ideas translate into paint on the canvas and the eventual outcome is just as the title says - In The Lap of The Gods.
A bit like life itself!
