My painting techniques are unconventional. Examining the style, itís not difficult to understand how these paintings are so bright and vibrant. By painting in layers, using broad sweeps of colour washes of various densities on a pre-stretched surface, the luminosity of the picture surface comes through and the paper is dampened allowing the paint that can provide some very liquid representations and surprises. I prefer using watercolour and gouache as it is a fast medium to use and doesnít take long to dry between layers.
