Mixed media on watercolour paper.
Painted at ABF during my Artist is residency there. These were done “live” whilst the author was speaking and then Abir and Vassem signed the painting after the event. Both my signature and theirs are on this painting.
I used a variety of media underpinning the whole painting with drawing. It felt important to capture the atmosphere and colours of the location as well as the content of the talk, they are expressively worked and not finished or added to after the event to avoid the curse of over working and the loss of the immediacy of the work.
