In this video I talk about the last 2 paintings of the window series inspired by a tropical greenhouse in the Barbican, London. The 2 paintings were painted on top of some screen prints on canvas that were created from some previous sketches. Hear a bit more about each painting's story (30 x 30cms) and why it is important to 'break' a painting although not always easy to do!
and here are a few pics of the original screen prints meshes of the sketches that underlay some of the background. They were photo transferred onto canvas and combined with some direct printing using gauze and mesh. Can you see the original prints in the paintings :-)

Hear the story behind these two little abstract expressive paintings, some ideas re mark making and working big and small at the same time!
A few pics of a painting as I paint it. Hear more about the inspiration in my vlog in an earlier post! I don't paint to a plan, I have an idea and generally a sketch and then I'm off. It's finished when it makes me smile :-) The painting is 70 x 70cm, painted in acrylic and on stretched canvas.
A few thoughts, videos and inspirations along the way!
