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:
