This is a small series of abstract works, designed to consider movement. The pieces are layered, each layer representing a different element of movement.
I started with wet paper to which I added graded shades of water colour, the idea was to represent the drift and movement from one colour to another.
Once that dried, the next layer arrived as paint splashed from the brush, a much more random movement. Finally I blew some gilding paste across the surface of each piece, then applied some gold leaf. It took more readily in certain areas than others.
One of the finished pieces featured in the ITV News article about my free art project, and was given away near Beddington Park. Another piece has been given away in Wallington and a third has been gifted. There are three post card sized pieces remaining in the series – if you like the look of any of them – drop me a line, they are for sale.
