so not strictly and oil painting
as usually thought of - but using oil paints to produce a monotype (monoprint)
responding to poetry/lyrics/light for a project with friends, 21cm square
I used fragments from several poems -
Smugglers Song, Rudyard Kipling
Under Milkwood. Dyland Thomas
Calypso, Suzanne Vega
Sea Fever. John Masefield
the first 2 should really be a moonless night - but ... artistic licence!
It's a monotype done with printing medium mixed with oils paint rolled out onto acetate, drawn into to remove the colour in areas and then printed. Plus a little cp when dry.
The printing medium (Georgian) is really
good, making the oil paint roll out just like printing ink but allowing me the wide range of oil colours I have.
