Beautiful Stranger – Progress.

I am really excited about some recent developments in terms of my painting practice.  I have worked on my recent canvas with a great range of colour layers and washes.  The glazing of the underpainting, which is in turn blasted off with a jet of water, creates a sensation of unusual depth to the work.

i am hoping to achieve a greater complexity of the surface quality. I am also experimenting with a juxtaposition of hyper realistic portrayal and random and accidental marks created by the jet of water. However, this process is more than just a mere accident.  I am also slowly learning how to control the nozzle of the pressure washer in order to achieve an effect, which i particularly desire.

In technical terms, I have also extended on my typical use of brushes and started to include working with sponges and cloth.

The process is documented below:
