Recently I have been working on painting in a studio space. It has been brilliant to be able to work at a different scale and have room to move around, despite the area being fairly cluttered with sculptural work for the upcoming show with Johnny Burrage at the Koffie Pot. I drew the image in quickly with charcoal, finding it a good medium to build up exploratory lines and watch the image materialise. I then blocked in with acrylic and added definition in important features. I intend this to be one of a series of larger paintings, the main theme being the process of introspection involved in their creation, and the resultant dreamlike quality.
