Mixed media double page spread; tissue paper, junk ephemera, mod-podge, gesso,watercolour, print of my ‘Tree Of Life’ painting. I love how the watercolour has settled over the different textures and layers below, this is something I intend to work with further in the future.

I love this page, it’s a mixed media spread of sticker backings which created the circles, gesso, watercolour, scrap papers and a final layer of payne’s grey watercolour ; something that I played around with again in a later page because I loved the effect so much.

Having spent so long lately using my travel journals and art kit it’s been a while since I really played in my studio journals/sketchbooks. I’ve been making a concerted effort to fill all of my started books including my dedicated studio ones.

We have all experienced heart ache in life, that feeling that our hearts are haemorrhaging life blood, crying their own tears of pain for a lost love or opportunity. At one such point in my life this is the raw painting that surfaced from it; dark, textured, patchy and filled with interest from the layered ‘bandaging’ beneath to the wire and garnet areas that spring forward from the heart itself.

This original mixed media painting is available to buy from my website.
