Busy August...



I spent August experimenting in the studio with new painting techniques informed by experimenting in screenprinting. These all started out with black liquid acrylic on canvas, I really liked the spontaneity I had achieved by dashing of some designs to be screen printed so I tried combining that technique with oil painting and now I'm really pleased with the results......
