Original mixed media painting in gouache, pastel, graphite and ink on Bockingford Watercolour paper (300gm/sq m, acid free.)
"'Final Crossing' is placed in Devon - at the Ferry between Shaldon and Teignmouth. 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 ferry crossing has classical connotations that interest me e.g. crossing the Styx. Structura is a paste which has been applied to the surface of the paper to provide texture as part of the painting process."
