Things are underway on my latest piece and I have been putting down some background dye colours.
My wonderful brush 15cm / 6" wide - it seems to contain lots of power!
A couple of colours, fairly random at this point. The painting going over the masking tape. Colours blended with clear water after painting.
The addition of the gold looks a bit of a mess but these colours will be over-dyed eventually. Both these photos are still at an odd angle...
And a couple more photos from the Chatham Islands.
Mixed messages. Life's necessities!
