Artist's description:

I visited Hay-on-Wye in Wales many years ago. Whilst I was there, I bought a beautiful antique book about Roses. The illustrations in this book inspired me to create a painting that looked like a vintage stamp/ transfer with enhanced colours, a reminder of tinted photography. I painted the background colour with pearlescent ink, in a 1950's turquoise blue, and then transferred a colour photocopy of one of the illustrations with acetone. Some traces of the paper from the photocopy remain on the canvas. I then added layers and layers of paint, pastels and pencil. This painting became an exploration of tecnique, and real and unreal suspension of still life.

Materials used:

Pearlescent ink, acetone, colour photocopy, pastel, ink, acrylic, watercolour pencil on stretched canvas.
