    Forty years on

    Forty years on

    I came across this school photo and realised some of my repertoire from then still exists today. In a slightly more refined fashion as in the silhouettes and the pop art.

    Representational painting

    Some of my paintings may look like prints. This is a snippet of how they are made. I use my own photographs. I can spend hours, sometimes days trying to find the right angle or view point. The photos are manipulated in various programmes on the computer and then when I am happy with the picture I make stencils. Anything between 8 and 12 with up to 3 colourways for each. I then paint a base colour on a canvas which corresponds with a colour in the painting and then I paint in a sky if relevant. I spend hour upon hour picking little bits out of adhesive backed stencil. Which I then stick on the canvas and paint over. Then I do it again and again and again. By the 5th stencil the canvas is moving and lining up is nigh on impossible. The stencils are one use only. I very often have to repaint parts where the paint has been pulled off with the stencil. It seems like a difficult process but I love how the painting builds up and its the way I love to do it.

    After spending a couple of years working on figurative pieces I have taken the decision to get down to doing some more abstracts.
