Mixed media painting on Bockingford Watercolour paper (300gm/sq m), white matt surface, acid free. Structura is a paste applied to the surface of the paper to provide some texture as part of the painting process.
"'Defensive Position' is placed on the Humber Estuary at Spurn Head. I paint places where I have an emotional connection and can explore ideas from personal history to classical references to the process of painting itself. The Humber Estuary with its space and life provides a back drop to explore thoughts and ideas and the pier at Spurn Head is a structure I return to. It is an original mixed media work in gouache, pastel, graphite and ink on structura ground."
