Soft pastel on paper 10″ x 10″
I am using primary colours in this part of my series of Beyond the Surface paintings, but now with the addition of either white or black pastel .
The base of each work is identical, then I used white pastel (or black as below) to enhace the painting
On completion I used the painting below and altered it using ‘Paint’ and ‘Photo Shop’ to create several new images,
I use this method in many of my works
(- one of which is VII below, which is from one of the layered images I made.)
Using the same as the above pastel painting – red, blue & yellow – plus black pastel
Acrylic paint on paper
Taken from a Beyond the Surface painting.
Using Photo shop I cropped, layered, flipped to alter the image,
before moving it into paint.
As before I poured watercolour paint over in prussian blue and cad yellow. Then worked into the Cartridge paper with oil pastels followed by acrylic paint.
One of two works. I used two types of paper – watercolour paper and heavy cartridge paper, 2 colours – blues and yellows.
After pouring watercolour over both papers, I worked into the WC paper with
more watercolour paint then with oil and soft pastels and silver acrylic paint.
Acrylic & ink on paper 5″ dia
I have been using circles of paper to press texture into think paint.
Here I have used black ink to emphasise the patterns left behind.
This is just one of many different patterns from a series of work.
A1, pasted newspaper with acrylic on paper
I’m experimenting with ways of portraying the past, time and memories in paint. Here I pasted headlines from the Times newspaper and then poured paint down the paper , partially concealing parts with masking tape which have been removed to hint at past issues without telling the full story. Each layer of paint was in a different colour before finishing with a coat in gold to conceal the previous layers.
