Acrylic Paint on paper
Signed on the front.
This is a fun painting (for me) on paper. Matisse was my obvious influence, Acrylic paints were used on stretched cartridge paper. The original drawing is dipped in water and stretched on a board with the sides taped down with a special wet-tape. The surface is then painted with a couple of layers of transparent gesso, and then painted. The completed painting is varnished on the front. This gives the paper a plastic/rubbery quality. The painting has to be carefully cut around the edges of the tape and lifted from the board. A final layer of thin varnish is applied to the back to give the finished product further strength.
I went outside my usual palette and incorporated gold, copper, Napthol Red, and other pre-mixed colours.
The initial drawing for this painting was made recently at a life drawing session that I attended at Box Hill Community Arts Centre. I decided to take my favourites and paint them up; this is the first I've done from this group.
This painting needs to be framed. Due to the extra costs in shipping and the danger of breakage, I've chosen to allow the buyer to select and purchase their own frame and mat board. Please contact [email protected] if you need advice regarding framers and framing.
