Max Out on the Media

Layer after layer the paint is laid on. Paper is adhered and pastel sticks are used to make marks. The palette knife can be used to scrape and scratch through to what lies beneath.

Decisions are made over what kind of movement is needed with each layer. Will it be thick or thin or modified by a medium.

When should I stop? At what point is the composition interesting but not overworked?

Never get attached to a particular layer.

As I work on this series I imagine that the layers represent life events. Each canvas is a picture of someone’s experience, a window into their journey.
