There is an antiques shop that I often pass on my way and it has a wonderful Japanese gold leaf screen in it that I admire every time. Today I thought I would try making something with a similar idea. I took acrylic gold paint for the background and oil paints for the rest. Canvas board 30cm x 40cm.
I photographed this parrot made of some almost translucent pink stone or crystal on a stroll through the Vienna first district. Oil on paper, 7″ x 10″.
This was my attempt at something abstract. I am just trying anything at the moment and thought I’d give it a go. I had an Sunday afternoon tea in a garden in London in mind when I made this. Oil on paper, 7″ x 8″ (18 cm x 20cm).
