Back in February I wrote about The Fauves here – the undisclosed reason at the time was because I was working on some prospective work. I find it hard to juggle secret projects and my own work and so sometimes forget to show projects I’ve done that were under wraps but can now be revealed.

The study of the Fauves reminded me to under wash the paper first so that colour glows through any gaps – in this case I noticed in a painting, that pink works really well and so I gave it a go.

I love how it gives the white a depth and glow and how it peeps through lighter washes of colour.

This piece wasn’t chosen by the client but it did move me on in terms of content and technique.

These are sneak peeks of the other piece I did which is still on the hold list – fingers crossed.
