Artist's description:

We dived and swam, we entered it completely and let our bodies loose...

A mixed media painting on canvas. I started by bathing the canvas in inks, splashing water and oil onto the surface to create a dappled effect. The swimmers were painted into this using oil paint and extra effects to give the impression of light were added with oil paint also. Buffed pieces of stained glass have been adhered to the surface and the whole canvas finished with a layer of clear glaze.

'Swimmers' measures 50cm x 40cm. It is stretched created on canvas stretched on a wooden frame

I have been making things and painting things since childhood. Those days were spent living deep in the countryside nestled between woodland and lakes, an inspiration still.

Materials used:

oil paint, inks, food colouring, stained glass
