All work begins with an original oil painting on canvas. For a resin piece I would then layer the painting with two layers of epoxy resin which really makes the colours pop and gives a glossy finish. Flowers and/or 3d & metallic powders can also be added. The use of resin makes for a unique distinctive interpretation.
Beautiful colours, jewel like hues, so calming and uplifting to look at & immersive - resin mixology - like going on a zen journey with totally stunning results.
I use oil on canvas to produce an original and unique painting. This could be an animal you wish to commission me to paint or from the selection I have for sale. Backgrounds are left as a blocked colour so the focus is entirely on the animal; I also hand apply gold foil to the backgrounds.
Limited Edition Giclèe Prints are taken from my original paintings. Selected editions have hand embellished features: brushstrokes, silver & gold, spot resin; hand painted bees or flowers; texture in the hair making each piece unique.
Due to the nature of my sitters only photographs are used - they just won't keep still! We can discuss what's best to capture the individual character and personality of your animal when you get in touch to commission a portrait.
