Original mixed media painting in gouache, pastel, graphite, ink and structura ground on Bockingford watercolour paper (425gm/sq m), white matt surface and acid free.
"Structura ground is a paste applied to the surface of the paper to provide texture as part of the painting process. I paint places where I can explore thoughts and ideas as well as the process of painting itself. The capital city and its symbolic sites and references provide a lot of material for me to work on. Writing into the work is part of the painting process for me and this extends to the title of the work. "The way we look at the landscape determines how we understand and internalise it.""
