Angel
2010

Ink, watercolour, gouache on Arches paper.

This was produced for an exhibition in Northwood, North London, which required the artists to choose a psalm as the theme for a painting.

Mine was Psalm 91. In particular, the following verse: “For he will give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.”

I used the robust qualities of Arches paper to the full, flooding with colours and sandpapering to create the textures.
