2007

Watercolour on Arches paper.

Alongside the pure, controlled watercolour technique I was trying to develop, was a looser, more directly expressive style which eventually became dominant as I moved into mixed media.

Faces hold a particular fascination for all of us. As long as there are enough clues a very simplistic or distorted image is still recognisable as a face, so it is a good vehicle for self expression, if you need a representational subject (as I do).
