My messy ways. The only way I can work?


Believe it or not I intended to clean up my studio before I began any new projects. But I had canvas, and I had paint, and it was all just sitting there staring at me, and before I new it I had ten paintings on the go, and I do intend to clean up the studio. I swear!

The ghost of the drawing shows through.


Ghost.

Ghost.

This painting from my Long series is made up of several layers. The bottom layers are pastel, colour pencil, ink, and gouache. The top layer is a sheet of tengucho white that I laminated to the surface and worked with gouache and ink. I like the way the ghost of the lower images shows through.
