The background of this painting was created in the studio using a combination of techniques including mono print, stencilling and stamping using acrylic paint and inks. I then took the painted paper to a fishing harbour, where I drew directly onto it in ink whilst observing the boats. It was one of those hot days where the air seems alive and shimmering. Back at the studio I then collaged and painted the textured border to complement the painting and continue the shimmering theme.
This painting mesures 27 x 30cm (approx 10.5 x 12″) and is unframed.
