What am I working on?
Right now, I'm at the tail-end of a study period at uni, so I'm madly trying to get all of my painting assignments and essays completed. Here is my most recent painting, where I was required to use paint pouring and staining techniques and only three colours to investigate the theme of "imperfection". I chose to look at scars, and used the colours red, white and flesh tone.
Pouring paint is difficult to control, so I did loads of experiments and worked out the best ways to achieve the effects that I wanted.
How do I create what I do?
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
How does my creating process work?
One of the best ways to work is experimenting in my visual diary to try out ideas. I find that my first idea might lead to another, better idea. And sometimes I just dive in and see what happens.
Thank you! And the next blog-hoppers are ...
