Artist's description:

Semi abstract Ink Resist Painting in 'bleached' style wooden frame

Someone told me they thought my work had a look of a Van Gogh. I wish it had! I decided to use subject matter which he would probably have used to see if there was any similarity. Probably not, but this is how and why this painting came about.

Framed in a 'bleached' effect Quality Wooden frame. Shadow mounted with a double off white border with Artglass Conservation Grade non-reflective glass
Picture size is 20.2 cm W x 25.2 cm Hi x .35 cm D unframed approx
Framed size: 37 cm W x 42 cm H x 3 cm D approx

Ink Resist (an old technique which I have tailored to suit my style). My paintings undergo several processes to reach the end result which is unpredictable and quite delightful to create.

Ink resist paintings have a unique surface texture. They can be fairly smooth and matte (depending upon how much paint was applied in the first instance) and can appear a little shabby or unrefined. For me this is very appealing and very much the hallmark of this type of painting.

I have been producing Ink Resist paintings for about a year now, although I have been playing with the process on and off for about ten years. It is quite unique. I will be adding more paintings shortly
