This little image gallery shows the process paint sketches which led to the final piece on the gold background.
I’m not a natural planner, I struggle to sit down and do meticulous preparation for paintings, perhaps that’s a discipline I would have learned if I had academic training in art. I much prefer working with spraypaint to traditional drawing materials, I can test a concept quickly and I think this method of preparing for paintings will stay with me for a long time now.
The gold piece was sold at a preview, but the sketches, and lots of other works are on show this weekend in Melbourne. Here are the details: www.facebook.com/events/806841779351835/
