ACRYLIC ON PRE-STRECTHED CANVAS:
This series of works started in 2009 saw the return to painting on canvas. Using pre-stretched canvas was a big change from the previous paintings with a less defined format. The size of the canvas dictated the composition. The canvas is prepared with gesso and absorbent grounds and a variety of paint applications are used. This includes fibre and foam brushes along with trowels. The travel pigment is used as an accent rather than for an overall effect.
