Original artwork description:

Leonardo Da Vinci said that "Art is never finished, only abandoned." However I don't think I actually agree with him on this one, for a man who actually "finished" very few pieces in his lifetime and really did abandon a great many unfinished.

I feel like yes there is the possibility to keep working and working, I feel like Paul Gardner had it more correct when he said “A painting is never finished – it simply stops in interesting places”

This is of course the artists decision to stop.

So here we are, "Chase" painted in layers of inks and acrylic paints, each layer becoming increasingly smaller and revealing the layer beneath, using tape to redact the painting surface so that previous layers are able to be seen.
You can see the tape marks, the layers, the process, the surface and the "making" is just as important as the final image. Drips and washes tie layers together.

The size is 61x91cm, inks and acrylic paint on canvas.

The painting is signed and comes with a certificate of authenticity, coming directly from my studio.

Materials used:

Inks, acrylics, varnish on canvas
