Portraits

These four experimental portraits are indeed a hybrid of traditional techniques. A meld of drawing, watercolour, painting and finally layering of papers.

In each piece the background is a vital part of the narrative. Beginning with the complete stark whiteness within which the young typist floats defying time, the chintz fabric and vintage paper registering memories and finally the cold black void behind 'Everyman.'
