Large Paintings On Silk

“Diamond Dancer”

These are large paintings on Silk usually measuring 150 x 100 cms.

The silk is specially treated so that it takes thicker impasto as well as delicate glazes of ink and watercolour. I use this combination as it gived me a wide range of mark making effects. The thicker marks emphasising the surface of the material and the wash glazing giving depth to the work. What is important within the works is “atmospheric space” rather than depiction of the object.
