Ongoing work

This painting is something that I am working on at the moment at the studio. There is so much that I can say about this Jacket and the others like it that have been graciously loaned to me, but suffice to say that I am really interested in trying to capture something in my painting, something at odds with the tangible of this object.

I started with an old piece of Fabriano paper, that I probably had around since 1992, then China ink in layers building up the underlying structure or architecture of this amazing piece of clothing and finally gouache paint, introducing some colour and texture to the painting.
