Original painting in mixed media on paper.
'Hellespont' is placed on the Humber Estuary. 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. It is an original mixed media work in gouache, pastel, graphite and ink on structura ground. The work is 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'
