Inspired by the textures of luxury and oppulance this painting has been created using mediums ranging from acrylic, glue, inks, gold leaf, shellac, pastel and layers of various papers.

Please view the large version of this painting if you have the time, I believe it shows the details and textures much better.

I will be very interested in your comments as this painting presented many hurdles during the process, some mediums just don’t like working together! Pastel is not traditionally varnished, but I have defied tradition!

For developement of the painting you can view my journal entry where I have uploaded a few pictures of this work in progress. Now that it is complete I will upload a few more of the stages of developement for those interested, yes BillyLee – I am thinking of you : )

Thanks for viewing and leaving your comments.

My paintings are an exploration and expression of my personal emotions, interpersonal relationships and recollections of childhood; the human condition; and also influenced by my travel experiences and their influences on my senses as well as inspiration drawn from current fashion and pop culture.

My aim is to represent my world and express, with my chosen media the emotional moments, quirky twists and often humorous encounters of life.

    Love your shadowy cheeks! I bet using all those mediums would have been fun. I’d have just ended up making inky mud pies!
