Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The spark of life, that energy that moves us. This painting was one of a series inspired by circles where I was experimenting with abstract psychological ideas. It is one of my early abstracts. The painting uses iridescent colours which do not show up on the photograph.

The picture is painted on watercolour paper. I draw the lines with masking fluid to a planned arrangement before painting it with a watercolour wash which gets covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.

Materials used:

Watercolour and Acrylic ink on Watercolour paper
