Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

A smallish abstracted impressionistic painting and print depicting the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus at the heart of the West End of London. Maybe even the centre of the universe.
This is one of my acrylograph paintings. This is how I do it.
I visit the place and make sketches and/or take photographs. Next I return to my studio to make a new original painting on canvas, paper, or board. Then I scan or photograph the painting to make a digital file. Following that, I work on the digital file on my computer where I can resize, crop, flip, saturate colour, etc., and where I develop the image that I print out onto canvas. The last stage is where I paint over the printed surface with new ideas, features, highlights, and textures.
So my work progresses bit by bit. I can look at the last thing I did and tweak it, a little or a lot, to create a new, different, distinctive, result. There are effects that can only be achieved with real paint and other great results that are obtainable using digital means. Technically the end result is an acrylograph, which is a sort of hybrid, half print, half original painting. Each one is unique.
WOW. I really enjoy making this stuff!!
